My Approach to Helping
If you live just for today, to make today the most successful, happy day of your life, I am sure you will have an extraordinary life. A successful life is nothing more than a series of successful days.
I have always been genuinely interested in the well being and uniqueness of everyone. I believe that anyone can gain knowledge through their experiences in a warm, supportive, therapeutic environment. When facing challenges and struggles, you do not need to feel alone; it can be very advantageous to have someone by your side who is nonjudgmental, understanding, and compassionate. Taking the opportunity to seek out help is not a sign of weakness; it is an admirable attempt to try to live a more fulfilling life for yourself, and demonstrates a great deal of strength. I can help you to discover the useful tools that lie within you in order to cope with life’s troubles, thereby enabling you to have the kind of life you would like to have.
My goal is to provide you with the best mental health care possible in a courteous and efficient manner. I aim to provide a safe place where clients can open up by speaking freely and honestly. I recognize and understand your need for confidentiality, trust and respect. My therapeutic approach is eclectic and multi-dimensional. I often utilize cognitive behavior therapy, solution focused therapy, and choice theory techniques.
I encourage your questions and want you to become an active participant in the counseling process. Whether you are looking for occasional consultations for specific issues or in-depth work on longstanding struggles, I would be delighted to help you.
