Counseling for Adults
Each person that comes into my office is coming from a unique perspective. Most come willingly, while others may feel forced by a loved one. Some individuals have had good counseling experiences in the past and know what to expect, others may be stepping into unknown territory or territory that proved unhelpful years ago. Counseling may be seen as a path to healing or a path to increased satisfaction with life. I do not assume to know you; I am not here to judge you; I am here to help.
I see my role in counseling to help you find healing, relief from distressing symptoms, happiness and success. I am trained in and utilize multiple treatment approaches such as, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems, Person-Centered, Solution-Focused, mind/body, Psychodynamic, Systematic Desensitization and more. I am an active listener and seek to understand your issues and goals. I am empathic and supportive in nature and encourage the expression of emotions in sessions. I value honest and direct communication and as such, will gently challenge thoughts and behaviors that I perceive as obstacles.
