Creating an atmosphere of safety, acceptance, confidentiality , and trust will encourage individuals to engage in a therapeutic relationship that they will benefit from. The primary purpose of therapy is change. This therapist provides an atmosphere to explore for thoughts and feelings and encourage ventilation of these thoughts and feelings without being judgmental.. He also helps explore for alternative ways to think about issues and alternative tools to help one through the process. People are unique and our therapist recognizes this and uses the individual's strengths to help build on their self esteem and positive traits.

I encourage clients to tell their stories in an environment of safety and acceptance. I use the psychosocial perspective that encompasses a broad range of relevant information to achieve a holistic understanding of the client in the full context of his or her history and present life. I encourage emotional expression, recognition and development of strengths and skills, spiritual exploration, and mindful acceptance. Mandala art therapy and assessment, Neuro-Integration, and Emotional Freedom Technique greatly facilitate the process if the client chooses.
