Every now and then life has a way of hitting us hard. I believe that when individuals enter counseling they are feeling gridlocked in their current situation and need assistance navigating their way out of the storms. I see counseling as a process by which I guide my client in exploration and identification of their needs. Through therapeutic techniques I help raise clients’ awareness of ineffective behaviors and distorted thinking that may be standing in the way of the change they desire. At Sims Counseling & Consulting, we believe that transformation begins with renewed thoughts, meaning if you change your thinking; you can change your life!
No person is the same, therefore I integrate a variety of therapeutic interventions that will yield optimum results for each unique individual. I have experience addressing marital and relationship conflicts, behavioral problems, life transitions, depression, deployment, military and family life, anxiety, parenting challenges, grief, self-esteem, and more.
In addition to my clinical training and experience, I am also a certified yoga teacher. In session, I focus on the whole being and incorporate mindfulness based interventions to help individuals make mind and body connections. I am sensitive to issues of faith and spirituality, and at your request I am willing to incorporate spirituality into treatment.
