My Approach to Helping
I like to create a sanctuary space for you, so you can feel whatever it is you are feeling and express that without being judged, criticized, or minimized. I want you to experience complete safety and unconditional acceptance so we can build a therapeutic bond that will help you conquer whatever challenges you are facing. I have been trained in many methods of counseling, including creative techniques, so we can do counseling in a way that makes sense to you. One of my favorite counseling methods is sandplay, which allows you to gain insight and healing in a way that allows the whole brain to be involved. This method is excellent for processing trauma as well as problems, and tends to be less intense than traditional talk methods. I am certified in TeleMental Health Counseling (online counseling), where individuals can experience counseling from the comfort of home (or a safe location). I also offer couples counseling using the Gottman Method. If you would like to find out if I am a good fit for your counseling needs, I invite you to contact me.
