My Counseling Approach and Process

In my practice, I strive to create a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, to which my clients can bring their struggles. Together we explore the details of their problems and the resulting negative thoughts and emotions they are grappling with. In this process , my clients learn trust, in me, in themselves, and, perhaps, in God. As they experience and take in my concern, care and respect for them, my clients find the courage to stand up inside and honestly face and confront their pain. And as they do, confidence and hope begin to surface, bringing relief and peace. Thus encouraged, they move forward, taking small significant steps toward becoming more aware of themselves and others. They also learn to take responsibility for themselves in attitude, thought and action. Over time, they make better choices and become more intentional, positive, and genuine in forming healthier relationships, communicating with clarity and listening with empathy.

My Specialties

Currently, I work with individuals and couples (ages 18+). I use many modalities, always coupled with a relational style. I choose treatments that will work most effectively for clients. The techniques I use encourage clients to become more involved in their own therapy and that keep them motivated. The following are issues of interest and with which I work well:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • co-dependency
  • life transitions
  • relationships
  • communication difficulties
