My Approach to Helping
I believe that counseling process involves joining with you to explore the nature of the issues that bring you to counseling. Although we will spend time exploring these issues, we will also look at the nature of your relationships with the significant people in your life.
It is my belief that all individuals are striving to live happy and healthy lives. I also believe that as we have navigated the complexities of our unique environments as children and adults, we have found our best and most creative ways of surviving and thriving. This has required many of us to accept and accentuate certain parts of ourselves, and to hide or shut off others. It is the hidden and silenced parts of us that can lead to a sense of hopelessness or unrest. My approach to the counseling process aims to provide a relationship where all aspects of us can come to be known and understood, where it becomes safe to know what we truly want for our lives, and where our own creativity can be utilized to bring the life we long for into being.
