My philosophy of counseling is based on principles of mutual respect, honesty, collaboration, and genuineness. I believe helping persons feel better and do better is a holistic process. My approach as a clinician is to focus on the entire person-mind, body and spirit. I practice from a cognitive-behavioral foundation which is profoundly influenced by bio-psychosocial principles.
