My Approach

When you work with me you will be safe and cared for, after all the crux of counseling is relationship. My approach is one of healing through relationship. I believe that the counseling relationship gives people the chance to experience healthy relationships. Boundaries, compassion, empathy, truth, and caring. I will walk with you (or your children and family) through whatever difficulty you may be facing. If you're considering me to work with your child they will be treated as precious, unique, and as with all of us, a beautiful work in progress.

 

In regards to my therapeutic approach, as I mentioned, I take an integrative stance. I don't believe that  everyone will benefit from the same techniques all the time. My focus is the mind/body connection through my knowledge of Neuroscience and trauma/stress. Furthermore, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) principles, Bibliotherapy, Play Therapy techniques, and role playing. Above all, I will work to stay with you and move at your pace. I will find the best strategies and techniques for your situation.

That being said...counseling is work! I will be there to push you (or your children and family) because growth, change, and healing don't happen without adversity along the way. 

Feel free to ask me any questions! :)
