My Approach to Helping
Making the decision to reach out for help can be a rewarding and relieving first step towards feeling better. It takes a lot of courage and trust to welcome someone into your private world. I will work hard to connect with you because you deserve to feel safe and secure as you begin the journey of self-discovery and growth. Together we will devise strategies to achieve your goals and I will walk beside you every step of the way.
I think it is important for people to develop tools for managing current stressors, as well as insight into how patterns of thinking and behaving developed over time. Understanding how past experiences influence present patterns of thinking and behaving can help you create a future that aligns with who you intrinsically are. Everyone faces challenges, but recognizing how and why you react to these challenges in the way you do can drain them of their power.
I see my role as one of helping you to build a better relationship with yourself, empowering you to take steps to achieve your goals. I want you to find and treasure who you truly are, then live life as that person. You don't need to be anything but yourself, for you and for others. By being you, you learn to celebrate you!
