My Approach to Helping
Accept the client where they are at during presentation; then see the presenting problem(s) they are experiencing through their eyes, not mine. I consider it critical for the client to entertain and work with me in processing the pathology in the statement "you are what you think..."
Labels while necessary by context, have much more worth on soup cans than they do on people. My job is to identify the pathology and work with the individual(s) to process or develop alternatives to skills and strategies that they are already voicing or experiencing "do not, have not, will not, or are not" working for them.
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 solution-focused 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.
