My Approach to Helping
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As a therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
More Info About My Practice
As a counselor, I have the passion and conviction for the profession of counseling. As a counselor, I stay abreast with current research and I look for new and effective treatments to utilize with the clients I serve. I provide the opportunity for growth and self-discovery in the context of a safe, supportive, and therapeutic relationship. As a counselor, I utilize good communications skill which includes being able to speak to the client and being able to listen to the client. As a counselor, I believe that listening is very important and everyone deserves to feel heard. Each client comes to therapy with a story and as a counselor, I sincerely want to hear the story. Clients come to me with the valleys of life and I help them climb the mountain. I provide temporary support for the client and assist with developing skills to climb the mountain. During the therapeutic relationship, I watch as confidence is developed by the client. As a counselor, I am supportive of the client when it is time to terminate from therapy and continue without the counselor. The theory that guides my approach to counseling is Cognitive Behavioral which means that I work collaboratively with the client to identify how his or her thoughts and beliefs impact his or her feelings and behaviors. As a counselor, I hold myself to high legal and ethical standards. As I counselor I strive to provide consistent quality therapy to assist the client with the valleys of life.
Together we will decide on the number of sessions needed to achieve your goals. After our initial meeting, I may ask you to visit a physician to rule out any biological causes for your distress before continuing forward in the counseling process. In the case of issues or concerns beyond my scope of competence, I will make every effort to refer you to more qualified professionals.
