“We are free to be anything but unfree; It is here in the idea of self construction where anxiety dwells.” ~ George Kelley
Topics I Address
My professional experience has allowed me to develop expertise with a wide variety of counseling topics. I especially enjoy working with clients experiencing stress around transitions, loss, chronic and acute health issues, aging, caregiving, end of life, grief, anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues. I enjoy working with children, adults and families, including blended families and those with co-parenting issues. I also have expertise working with processing trauma, including domestic violence and sexual assault.
My Thoughts on the Therapeutic Process
The foundation of my therapeutic approach is to be client-centered and approach therapy from a strengths-based perspective. Each client I have worked with over the years has taught me that everyone is far more resilient than they realize, and that they contain more potential and strength than they imagine. Therapy is unique to everyone’s journey to change, to improve, and to cope with the obstacles of the life issues that one faces. My approach- we will work together to establish your goals and a plan to achieve them. Therapy does take courage and commitment, but it is a process in which you are not alone, and that can help you through difficulties, transitions and crisis.
My Professional Experience
My approach has been molded by life experiences, personal issues, along with school and various trainings. I do not pretend to have all the answers but will utilize resources to help you come to the best answer. My caring nature has guided me to choose this path of helping others as others have helped me as a profession.. My goal is always to approach each client as an individual, to listen, and to establish a safe place where clients can feel heard and begin to feel empowered to work towards their goals.
