My Approach to Helping

My philosophy and approach to helping people is to be on the same page as the person. As a team, we determine together what works for the person to help them move forward. Each approach and philosophy is different for each individual.

More Info About My Practice

I am willing to help in whatever way I can. I combine social work and counseling to help the client move forward. I also am willing to meet the client where they feel comfortable, may that be home, office, outside location, internet, phone, etc.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

All of us have problems and concerns that we have to deal with. When we go to friends or family, there is that fear of having a judgmental and bias view and advice. That advice doesn't always work. The beauty of therapy is that the therapist never gives advice. The process involves a non-judgmental, non-bias person helping you move forward on your own terms, your own way, without restrictions as a team.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Therapy is like forming a new relationship. Not everyone clicks. By continuing to search for the right therapist, you are empowering yourself and it is the first step to moving forward.
