Individuals seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals.
I have served in the helping profession for over a decade. Years of work in the field has informed the belief that the helping profession is most effective through collaborative and eclectic approaches to treatment, whether in residential / acute, in-home, community outpatient or private practice mental health settings. Professional Counselors bring different dynamics, expertise, approaches, and strengths to collaborative treatment. Mental health is a continuum, my approach is to examine a client's entire life i.e. social, family, personal beliefs, environment, and genetics.
My goal is to create a respectful and encouraging environment in which clients can discover and maximize their strengths. I work as a collaborative partner to promote self-empowerment and life enrichment through increased awareness and skills development, helping clients of all ages work through difficult problems, relationship issues and life transitions.
