“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.” ~ Naeem Callaway
Topics I Address
I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults who are processing anxiety and depression, as well as trauma, abuse, and developmental disabilities. That is in addition to the many other counseling topics that my experience has prepared me to handle. I feel that my unique approach, which combines a variety of therapeutic modalities, allows me to come together with any client and devise unique solutions to real-life problems. When working with children and families, I use play therapy as the most effective way to build better relationships with their children and for children to learn about themselves, their emotions, and their world.
My Thoughts about the Therapeutic Process
I believe the therapeutic process begins with an open mind, a willing heart, and a good relationship between the client and therapist. When a person challenges themselves to be vulnerable and open to sharing their experiences, they open themselves up to positive changes in their life. I truly believe that everyone has the ability to thrive. Taking the step to begin therapy can be scary and uncomfortable for many people, but it’s that same uncomfortable and exposed feeling that leads to the most significant change.
My Professional Experience
I have been working in the therapeutic field for fifteen years and in that time I have had diverse experiences in many different areas of psychology. Throughout my years as a counselor, I found that establishing a therapeutic relationship which encourages trust, empowerment, and growth in an accepting environment is paramount.
