What is your style/approach to therapy?

I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, I never refer to the awesome human beings i work with as clients, the term i use is (Participants). My personal theory is reducing someone to a client disempowers them and makes them feel as though they need to be fixed, we all suffer from what i call the human condition, As human beings when we partner together to solve issues we are a force to be reckoned with, thus empowering our best efforts to overcoming what may seem to be insurmountable obstacles in our lives.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

It is important to know that Partnering with me in your emotional physical growth with allow you to Mental Access Your Desired Automatic Impulses. Learning these skills will allow you to put forth your best effort and achieve your best results on the most challenging days in areas of your life that are most important to you (i.e , family, relationships, employment, physical health.

What’s the most profound, insightful, or interesting thing you’ve learned as a mental health professional?

The most profound insight or interesting thing i have learned is that there is no one stop shop on one size fits all to individuals and families. We are all very special and very unique which is why i use a 360 degree wholistic approach to help my participants achieve 180 degree changes in there lives.
