My Approach to Helping
I pursue a therapeutic framework that supports setting goals and strategies for productive therapeutic work. I enjoy counseling individuals, couples, and families. I am committed to compassionately working with clients who may experience trauma, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, marital and relational issues, and difficult family dynamics. I also help clients who need assistance in life coaching, communication, and conflict resolution. I create a safe haven that encompasses transparency, non-judgment, and acceptance, while empowering you to achieve goals with desirable results.
My specialty is marriage, couples, and family therapy. Although my framework of therapy is family systems, my primary therapeutic approach is solution focused therapy (SFT). I believe that inside everyone are strengths and a resiliency that once identified can be used to propel an individual in a direction that will yield a productive, positive outcome. I have a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Trauma Therapy.
More Info About My Practice
In my practice, I see couples, families, and individuals for a variety of relationship and mental health issues. I enjoy empowering my clients to be their best self. Encouraging my clients to trust in their ability to choose the kind of life they desire by coaching them through their areas of concern is fulfilling. Because I believe my clients are experts in their own life, my clients choose their journey, I only facilitate them in achieving their goals while on their journey. I do offer faith based counseling for those who desire for faith to be integrated in their therapeutic experience. We are respectful of everyone and provide excellence in clinical care within the framework of God\'s truth and guidance.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist, I believe that the client is the one that is an expert in their own live. My role is not to dictate how they should move forward, but to be a facilitator in creating a safe therapeutic environment that allows for the client to discover the best way forward in their life's journey. If the client can discover how THEY want to navigate their life through my support as a therapist, the probability of sustainable change is more likely.
