My Approach to Helping
I take a strength based approach to counseling. We will utilize your strengths as we work through those parts of yourself that may be causing you trouble or preventing you from living the life you want. In listening to you, I will take special notice of what is being spoken to help us understand how it relates to the concerns that may have brought you to therapy. Greater self awareness helps you make well thought out actions and decisions based on new knowledge and understanding of both your past, current, and future self.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy is helpful in relieving depression and/or anxiety. Some people think anxiety is a sign of weakness. It can be really hard to ask for help, especially if you are the person often helping out others. You may also just feel more comfortable behind the scenes, with the spotlight on others.
Therapy isn’t about me judging you or finding out what you are doing wrong. It’s about taking the time to get a better understanding how both your past and present life experiences are affecting you. We can talk about strategies to relieve some of the discomfort as well as take the time to get a deeper understanding of behavior patterns that just may not be working for you anymore.
