'5 Ways to Know Yourself Better'  FREE PDF

Welcome

Life is full of responsibilities. How often do you take time out for yourself? How often do you put something into your calendar that is yours that won’t be changed because you are finally ready to make yourself a priority?

I value your time and want you to get the most out of your visits. Initially, we will discuss your needs in person. Then we can discuss what way of communicating works best for you. 

Don't struggle alone, reach out for support

Support

Asking for support, is a step toward growth. We ask for support in preparing our taxes or fixing our car, yet when it comes to our relationships, our self-esteem, our coping skills, we as a society think we shouldn’t ask for support. I believe it is much healthier to think of counseling as a tool that can help every person become their best selves at a time in their life when they need it the most.

Strategies

Getting to know you and your situation is where we will start. The therapeutic approaches used will be based on your needs. Some of the therapeutic approaches used are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Positive Therapy. The goal is to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be.

Connection

Connection is based upon how you and your needs match the therapist’s personality, knowledge and expertise. You bring hope that therapy can create change, faith that you will have the fortitude to do the work and trust that your therapist is the one to help you through this. The better the connection between client and therapist, the better the results.
