My Approach to Helping
Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start….Nido Qubein. Life will always present challenges and sometimes can be complicated with feelings of depression or anxiety. I believe by examining the relationship between an individual’s thoughts and behaviors and the identification of appropriate coping skills, quality of life can improve. With 24 years of experience, I have supported adults presenting with mental health needs andor complex co-morbidities; ensuring needs are met in the most appropriate setting. A warm and empathic environment is provided to increase your comfort and confidence in sharing your life experiences. I believe in a client-centered approach, exploring all facets of an individual’s life; highlighting individual strengths to achieve personal goals. Collaborating with families and coordinating care with other providers is emphasized. Motivational interviewing and solution-focused techniques are employed as we partner together.
