I believe that therapy is a collaborative process starting with the the client and their strengths. My approach is empathetic and compassionate along with a good dose of humor when appropriate. I start where the client is and help them move towards their goals.
Success is determined by the client. Self-awareness, positive gains and utilization of healthy coping skills and increased life satisfaction are key. A client feeling more hopeful, reporting more positive experiences and thanking me is a sign. A baseline assessment can be developed to help monitor progress.
Therapy doesn't have to be this big deal or scary. It is relating to someone in a safe space who is there to help you get what you want and need. This is a no judgement zone. Where else can you find that?

Don't just settle for surviving. You can learn to thrive! I moved from Michigan to NC in 2002 after realizing that sunshine and warmer climates were essential to my quality of life. I believe I have a unique trifecta of 33 years combining my clinical, clinical educator and Yoga Teacher hats to work with the whole person. I have been providing therapeutic services for adults with mental health challenges who want a better quality of life for themselves and their loved ones. I teach coping skills to benefit the client and to model for those they care about. I also help students and adults: Relax, breathe and be mindful, empower themselves, learn emotional regulation, increase mental, physical and emotional well-being, develop confidence and increase motivation for success.
