My Approach to Helping
My goal is to offer you a counseling experience that includes unconditional positive regard so that you and I can focus on and explore the issues you deem important. I work primarily from a Person-centered approach. Other approaches can be used to fit your specific counseling needs and goals. No matter the approach, you will be therapeutically supported and treated with dignity and respect as you explore your challenges. You will be encouraged to develop empowerment, knowing that you are capable of creating good and positive growth in your life. These are major elements of successful therapy in this practice.

My Role as a Therapist
The therapist is a reflective guide in discussing your issues, and then encouraging you to look at those issues to find possible solutions. The choice is yours at all times to perform any action (or inaction) in making life changes. Counseling blends mutually insightful dialogue; our respective life experiences; and adds your drive, desire, and attitude for change. Together, we become a team to help you reach your desired goals in becoming your best self.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
The decision to begin therapy can be filled with anxiety. However, therapy can be a place of healing, when we come from courage and give ourselves permission to be open and honest with where we are in life. This gives you the opportunity to develop peace and harmony within yourself. When you come to realize that you are worth the effort to change and grow as a person, the challenges in your life have a greater chance of becoming more manageable. You will not be alone on your therapeutic journey.
