I would like for each individual to know that a therapy sessions can be fun and that you might look forward to them as you further develop your inner strength and resilience. I am humbled when clients share life experiences with me. Sessions are conducted confidentially via a HIPAA supported video platform and relevant documentation will be completed in a HIPAA supported electronic health record following each session.
Through therapy, clients can learn how to identify and incorporate changes in their thought processes and behaviors. Such changes can make a positive difference in how they feel about themselves. In addition, there are assessment tools that therapists utilize to help support whether a client seems to be benefiting from therapy.
Individuals may be hesitant in seeking treatment due proximity to the closest mental health facility, fear of being seen as they drive into the parking lot of a therapist’s office, and/or needing to maintain :distancing: due to the pandemic. Tele-mental health sessions provide the means of reaching some who might, otherwise, never have sought therapy in the traditional brick and mortar setting.

Research indicates that the relationship between therapist and client is one of the strongest predictors of successful treatment. I retired in 2018 with almost 30 years as a civilian social worker for the United Stated Army, and had several years in geriatric work prior to this. I work to help each client realize his/her inherent value and to find joy in everyday experiences. The client is the greatest asset in each therapeutic relationship. I serve, only, as a guide to help each person to unlock the greatness that is in each and everyone of us. If you could utilize more positive self-talk for getting through the day, enhance your communication with loved ones, improve upon your stress and anger management skills, receive a better night’s sleep, or just need coaching while in pursuit of your goals, then I would like to be of assistance. You may be experiencing negative thoughts that have weighed you down for the last several months or decades. Once an individual allows him/herself permission, then I have learned from both professional and personal experiences, that it is never too late to start feeling better. Let me hear from you,
