My Approach to Helping
I believe that my role as a counselor is to assist you in reconnecting with strengths that you already possess, and to help you in developing new skills and techniques that empower you to live your dreams and meet your goals.
I enjoy working with adults and adolescents on a variety of issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, healthy relationships, self-worth, identity, sexuality, substance abuse, parenting, and major life transitions.
Parent coaching, couples/family therapy, group therapy, and the treatment of adolescents with behavioral problems and emotional disturbances are areas in which I specialize.
I am an active and engaging counselor. I draw from a large variety of psychotherapeutic backgrounds and consider myself eclectic, meaning that I will choose an intervention or therapeutic model as needed to address a particular client's needs at a particular time. I also create my own interventions for clients that are individually personalized. I work collaboratively with my clients, and strive for a holistic approach that considers your psyche (the Greek word for soul) to be interrelated and interconnected with both your mind and your body.
