I believe that the most important aspect of counseling is a positive therapeutic relationship based upon trust, safety, empathy and understanding. In creating such a therapeutic relationship, I employ a person-centered approach designed to give you the power to heal your own life. This is based upon the idea that you are the biggest expert in your life and that I am here to help you uncover the solutions to the issues that are troubling you. I will provide you with unconditional positive regard, which means that we will establish a therapeutic relationship built on understanding, trust, and confidence.
Together, we will explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and come up with positive solutions to meet your related life challenges. We will work to discover your thoughts and feelings about your circumstances with the ultimate goals of bringing about positive behavioral changes and you gaining control of your own life.
I'm a therapist with Octave and Evernorth Behavioral Care Group. Octave is a mental health practice providing high-quality care covered by multiple insurances. Evernorth Behavioral Care Group is a behavioral health provider group in-network with Cigna Healthcare and Evernorth. For my availability, please reach out to Octave’s team by emailing or calling.
