In an atmosphere of acceptance, I will establish and maintain a trusting relationship to promote your growth and self-direction. I use brief cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques to help you with your issues through a goal-oriented, systemic process.
I believe that therapy has to be a very collaborative process. During your counseling sessions, we will work together towards building a clear understanding of your strengths, and developing successful strategies for dealing with your issues.
I provide an environment to help you facilitate your emotional growth. Whatever your issues, you will begin to understand and grow from them. It is not my place to tell you how to live your life. Rather, I will help you make your own decisions by sharing ideas in a caring relationship.
