Telling someone that you barely know about your darkest secrets can be scary. However, the fact that you are thinking about getting counseling at this moment shows strength and courage. As someone who has gone through the process of seeking help with a professional therapist, I can understand your fears and hesitation. That's why I strive to understand my clients at a personal, heart to heart level. I see the process of counseling as similar to going on a journey, with lessons to be learned and blessings to be celebrated. I hope I can be a useful guide on this personal journey of yours!
I specialize in non-judgmental, person-centered therapy for clients who suffer from wide range of issues, like depression and anxiety; using techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. However, I personalize my counseling approach for everyone because I understand that we are all unique in our own ways.
I am committed to utilize the approaches that will be safe and useful for you. If you have any questions about my methods, or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch today, and I will be happy to answer any question you might have.
