Starting now, you can begin a brand new journey toward a more positive path for yourself – one that’s filled with growth, well being, acceptance, and empowerment.
Carl Rogers once said, “When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, “Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it’s like to be me.” We all experience times in our lives where we just need to be heard, to be validated, to find some direction. It is my belief that a therapeutic relationship with a genuine therapist who provides an authentic, nonjudgmental, safe environment is the most important factor for growth and positive outcomes.
I have worked in various settings involving individuals (adolescents and adults), families, couples, and small groups. Issues of practice include sexual identity, relationship concerns, divorce, blended family adjustments, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child sexual abuse. I have experience working with diverse populations and all socioeconomic levels.
My philosophy towards counseling stems from the idea that each client is unique. I’m an eclectic counselor and tailor therapy based on the client’s world view, issues, and personality. I employ the use of person-centered, cognitive behavioral, narrative, solution focused, existential theories, as well as gestalt techniques.
