My Approach to Helping
I help clients using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), along with a holistic approach to wellness, using a variety of counseling techniques. I approach counseling from a wellness, holistic perspective, considering the whole person and how your mental and emotional health impact your physical and spiritual health and vice versa. I see my clients as capable experts in their own lives, and I am there to guide, educate, inform, support, and encourage. I provide a supportive, collaborative, empowering environment, where I can give a new perspective or a different way of looking at a situation that can help clients feel better about themselves and their lives.
