This is the first step towards choosing you! If you are reading this it is not by accident; THIS IS YOUR SIGN!!!
My philosophy on therapy; therapy is guidance during times of uncertainty, unsure paths, and situations. Therapy is the flashlight in through dark tunnels, where you are holding the flashlight luminating what you want to see. Where do I come in... during treatment we will work together exploring and learning your triggers, learning, and utilizing coping skills and techniques, address trauma and strengthen your mental wellness.
Mental health is just as if not more than important as your physical health. Therapy is not only supportive counseling, but it will also take practice, consistency, and rolling up your sleeves and getting real.
What I want potential clients to know is I have a relationship versus authority personality; I ask a lot of questions to be sure that I am fully understanding as well as to challenge your thought and thinking process. Trust is a key component with therapist and the client. I may not be your cup of tea...maybe I am more like a stiff shot! and that is ok!!! remember this process is about you!
