My Approach to Helping
My approach to counseling is very results oriented. I want people to start feeling better right away. I help people think about themselves, their lives and their relationships differently. I help people take control of the way they feel and how they respond and deal with the issues they face. My primary approach when working with individuals is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that research repeatedly validates as working more quickly and effectively to bring about positive changes than traditional talk therapy. I work extensively with couples needing relationship counseling using the latest research based methods of conflict resolution, communication and trust building to help partners deepen their connection and resolve conflict in a way that allows them to stay connected rather than tearing them apart.
Many of my clients choose to see me specifically because of my expertise in CBT or relationship counseling and also because I am certified in Clinical Hypnosis and will, when appropriate, incorporate hypnotic techniques into the therapy process. Incorporating hypnosis along with Neruo-Linguistic Programing Techniques and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) (tapping) can even further enhance and expedite the results achieved from therapy.
