I see counseling as a process in which you the client, and I having come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life and work in a systematic fashion toward realizing those goals. I focus on clients with general mood disorders, addiction/ substance use and vocational issues. Working to help clients understand and identify their own strengths and incorporating coping skills. Helping them to exemplify their strengths while processing aspects of the past to create an understand their present and future.
I approach counseling from a client centered perspective in that, through our therapeutic relationship we explore together and understand the clients’ problems to develop solutions. I include several different modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Solution Focused Therapy in order to take an eclectic approach to the clients' needs.
As we work together to reach the goals you set forth, I will ensure that you are empowered to take the reigns of your life and make this experience your own. I work with clients in a variety of formats, primarily individually. I am open to seeing clients of all ages and backgrounds with emphasis on adolescence and young adults.
