My philosophy of therapy is much like that of the words spoken by Alexander Graham Bell "when one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us." My goal in providing counseling is to help individuals find direction and function at their highest potential within all life areas. I help my clients focus on solutions to any obstacle. You can expect a confidential consultation and counseling, a respectful and non-judgmental attitude, candid guidance and support, and active listening, encouragement, and motivation.
I have had over 4 years of providing individual and family counseling to children and teens within the community. I utilize a didactic approach that encompasses conflict resolution skill building techniques, coping skills, self-esteem enhancement, problem solving, goal setting, and stress management. I have developed many behavior modification plans focusing on impulse control, ADHD behaviors, anxiety, and self-harm thoughts. Some of the issues faced in family therapy were: parent-child conflict, adjustment issues, divorce, school performance, and communication patterns. The primary theoretical framework utilized is Family Systems Theory. Also an eclectic approach is utilized depending upon the presenting problem.
I also have experience in providing mental health services to adults, teens, and families within the community. The main focus of therapy has been stress management, life transitions, personal growth, negative thinking, crisis management, self-harm thoughts and depression. My goal of therapy is to help people reach their fullest potential in all life areas, find solutions to life problems, and create a "happier" you.
"Feeling a connection" with a therapist is one of the most important factors when determining the right therapist for you. This connection allows for trust to foster within the relationship which in turn allows for growth within the individual seeking services.
The absolute thing I love about being a therapist is observing the change and growth of an individual. "Planting a seed and watching it grow" as some people say. This makes me passionate about providing counseling services to the best of my ability and helping people grow to their fullest potential.
