We find ourselves in need of counseling help for a variety of reasons, including: life and vocational transitions, unpleasant feelings and emotions, personal growth, or perhaps a sense that something is just not quite right. Counseling is a special place in which we can truly be ourselves in the midst of whatever we are experiencing. I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals from a variety of backgrounds. I seek to enter the world of clients with whom I work regardless of their religious, gender, sexual, and cultural identities.
I work collaboratively with clients to identify their needs and potential strategies for meeting those needs. My counseling approach is person-centered in that I view myself as a support system of encouragement, as I carefully consider approaches and interventions that are proven to help the needs, challenges, and issues that my clients face. I often work from a psychodynamic counseling approach to learn how a client’s early experiences affect their current situation and unconscious feelings and emotions. I also use other approaches, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, as I focus upon what will be most helpful for the needs of each particular client.
