Counseling is a collaborative experience and it is my goal to make sure that it continues to be that way between myself and the client. I work with clients to guide and help them find their own personal strengths and set achievable goals. My goal with the client is to assist them in discovering tools so that they can rely on their personal strengths to face and overcome life’s obstacles and stressors.
Therapy is a process that I began with my clients as a guide to them. When meeting and beginning the therapeutic journey with a client I assess their needs with goals and objectives in a collaborative environment. Life is a journey of ups and downs; I want to provide clients with the support they need for now and in the future. I use a style of counseling that utilizes various strategies and techniques to best meet the client’s needs. Such strategies may include, but are not limited to, a person-centered approach, narrative, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness exercises. I work with clients to come up with a plan to create a better mindset and a clear understanding of what to expect.
