My Approach to Helping
My counseling style is client-centered as determined by the needs of the client by focusing on strength-based approaches. I focus on helping clients achieve a more centered, balanced life by giving them the tools needed to grow within life's challenges. I utilize a holistic approach to address the functional, emotional, and psychosocial health of the client.
I am an autism advocate who has more than 20 years of experience working with parents who have children on the autism spectrum. I have experience with a wide range of clinical issues such as depression and anxiety. I also work with clients struggling with the daily cares of life: stress, grief and loss, being a single parent, relationship, career, and spiritual issues.
I have worked with diverse groups of people in a variety of settings which include the following: social service agencies, prison, and in-home. I have an extensive background providing counseling, coaching, and social services to clients. I am passionate about helping to empower clients by validating their feelings and progressing to their goals. I believe healing is a beautiful and complex process and counseling allows me to promote mental and emotional health. I remain present with clients to do the healing work with them as they journey to having a vibrant life.
