What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first session together, we will explore your reasons for seeking treatment, individual stressors, how you are affected in various aspects of your life, some background information, strengths and resources and additional information to assist with your treatment. We will work together to create a personalized treatment plan addressing your goals for us to use in follow-up sessions. Your clinician will strive to answer any questions you may have.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I hope that I can help you achieve your goals while honoring the belief that you are the expert of your own life.

My treatment methods


Counseling Approach: My counseling style is eclectic in order to meet all individual client needs, but much of my work is based on Humanistic theory, primarily Client-Centered and Existential. I believe it is important to fully explore your strengths, resources and desires and keep you actively involved in decision making throughout the therapeutic process. I enjoy motivating my clients, exploring and expanding their options for growth and helping them open their eyes to their own potential. While childhood, genetics, environment and past experiences are strong forces in a person’s life, how we process our experiences and the meaning we assign them can make the difference in whether we continue to endure suffering or learn to thrive and lead fulfilling lives. Through self-discovery, goal-setting, healthy coping strategies, support, psychoeducation and practicing more positive thinking and behavioral patterns, our lives can be improved. There are many theories and techniques used in therapy today. If you wish to pursue a certain type of theory or technique, please let me know.
