My Approach to Helping
My goal in offering counseling services is to support clients in creating a more empowered life for themselves and their loved ones. My approach to helping is providing you a safe place to discuss issues affecting your relationships, work, and emotional well-being. Often times we are unaware of how much responsibility and commitments we carry that we do not have time to take care of ourselves until we are sick, resentful or overwhelmed, feeling powerless. I am a direct, compassionate and supportive listener. My goal is to assist you in identifying areas to relieve pressure or problems in your life. I believe most stress comes from having self-goals that may not align with the expectations of others in our personal relationships or work responsibilities. In turn, the lack of focus and support to ourselves leads to problems of self, our relationships and in our careers. We do have choices in the decisions, actions, and behaviors we take. In meeting with me, we address your issues that bring you to counseling, set goals and collaborate through discussion on the areas of your life that you need more support, action or attention. I feel fortunate to meet and work with clients motivated for change and a happier more peaceful existence even though they have busy lives. I am focused on encouraging results that lead to a more confident, focused and insightful client that has clarity on the changes and steps needed to experience loving, healthy and fulfilling lives.
More Info About My Practice
I enjoy meeting with and offering one on one personalized therapy for individuals facing stress or feeling stuck in certain areas of their lives. These times in our lives may lead to feelings of self-doubt, anxiety, and fear. Having a professional counselor to meet with and discuss concerns and identify goals and next steps is energizing and empowering.
I am a skilled career counselor, assisting clients to find greater fulfilment in their current careers or assisting them in transitioning into other fields.
I work with women and men with successful professions and lives who are dealing with accumulated stress and need support in regaining balance within themselves and their lives so they feel strong and well to address their own needs and those of their loved ones and clients. The ability to meet with a therapist and develop strategies for support and balance make improved changes in our lives quicker than we think.
I work with high school students and their parents preparing to go to college and those in college but adjusting to this new chapter in their lives so they are successful, motivated and independent young adults.
I enjoy working with middle management and senior-level executives managing multiple responsibilities with employee relations, production, profitability, maintaining brand excellence and balancing personal lives and self-care.
I facilitate women's workshops focusing on women in transition including motherhood, staying at home, returning to work, facing empty nests or confronted with unexpected separation-divorce in the marriage.
I offer support to individuals grieving the death of a loved one, the ending of a marriage or the unexpected termination of a job.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Feeling apprehensive about attending counseling? I believe this is typical of most people considering counseling for the first time or if you have past experiences that were not ideal. My approach is open and collaborative. If you are feeling stuck in some aspect of your life, a therapist is an objective trained professional to help you re-gain focus and momentum. I have found time and time again, that the amazing individuals I meet with are their own best guide. I just help to re-introduce themselves to their own inner voice and goals so they can gain clarity and insight to confidently move forward.
