As a mental health professional, I have learned each and everyone of us has a story that matters. The most profound insight in which I have experienced this, both personally and professionally is each life situation, experience, both good and challenging, become a part of the fabric of my life which allows me to live life to the fullest.
The therapy goals are determined by the client with utilizing assessment tools and therapist impute. It is my belief as a therapist, each and every one of us has inner strengths and strategies. The therapy goals are developed through a collaborative effort by both the client and therapist to facilitate personal growth, increase self esteem and develop proactive coping strategies to deal effectively with life challenges.
Our first session is the most important. It invites you to share what’s been going on in your life, what’s on your mind, what’s bothering you, or whether there are any goals you’d like to discuss. You’ll be invited to speak openly and ask questions. It is an opportunity for you to feel comfortable with me and determine if we are a good fit.
