My Approach To Counseling
I am a strength-based and relationship focused counselor. I offer guidance, encouragement, respect, and support. It is my belief that we must find meaning, purpose, and connection to feel whole. There is not a one size fits all approach to treatment as there are many ways to achieve health and happiness. During a session some techniques commonly used are mindfulness based, creative activities, and EFT. 
 
Am I Right For You?
It is difficult to seek out therapy due to fear of judgement, a prior bad experience with a therapist, or just not knowing what to expect. The last thing I want to do is add to the stress of reaching out for help. Every therapist is different and it's important to find the one that's a good fit for you.
 
Contact me for a free phone consultation. If we are not the right match for each other, I will provide you with a referral for another therapist who may be.
