My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping is to engage the client in a relationship that promotes expression of feelings and concerns; This therapeutic safe place investigates strengths and uncovers skills to promote growth. In my practice, I combine the Strength's Perspective into each therapeutic modality and skills evolve from a place of encouragement. The goal of therapy is to create a unique environment filled with empathy and understanding toward holistic emotional healing.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Therapy is an investment. It allows one to be heard and to build meaning around the struggles or questions being raised. The therapeutic relationship is one of the biggest indicators of success, regardless of how long or short the relationship lasts. Some people have fears around vulnerable or shameful topics, and this is a way that they can safely be processed. Therapy is highly protected, in terms of release of information, and good therapists make it clear that your information is held in the highest regard and privacy is of the utmost concern, unless there are issues being addressed in the therapy room around child endangerment, elder abuse, suicidality or homicidality. Then, privacy is not protected. Regardless, it is important to know that therapist help in some way in all of these situations. People experience all types of psychological and relational issues, and "talking it out" is a good way to begin the healing.
