What does a first session with you look like?

In a first session, I work to gather background information and diagnostic formulations of presenting problems. Also, I will address any presenting crisis situations that need to be mitigated and lastly discuss a proposed course of treatment in working together.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

They have given me great personal insight into helping others though their own issues. Developing trust in each other. Client goals are based on what they express as their main concerns and is often discovered through the assessment process. The first session is often focused on me asking question about your life and the issues you are facing to develop a clear assessment picture. I am rather low key, easy go, but directive and firm when needed. I am open to discussion on spiritual issues and I work to empower clients in a strength based approach.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

My Path to being a therapist developed as I began volunteering in ministry groups and counseling people when we played concerts. Also, it stems from my person recovery in 12 Step groups for 36 years

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am rather low key, easy go, but directive and firm when needed. I am open to discussion on spiritual issues and I work to empower clients in a strength based approach.
