"Entering counseling is about developing a therapeutic relationship with the client. With that in mind, I make every effort to engage clients by first getting to know them and their needs. I believe that for change to occur for clients, they need to trust that their therapist is trustworthy, sincere and supportive. My counseling style tends to be interactive, with a focus on key issues that present in clients lives in the form of themes, patterns. I am comfortable working with different theoretical approaches, keeping in mind what clients respond to most."

"People who seek psychotherapy feel stuck and stressed. Psychotherapy is an emotional learning process which takes place between a therapist and a client. Within this joint endeavor, the therapist's role is to actively listen and offer interpretations/suggestions. The client's role is to be as open as possible about his/her feelings and life situation and to engage with the therapist in a productive dialogue. The mutual goal is to facilitate the individual's self knowledge and arrive at a new understanding about the presenting problem, thereby freeing up the person to resolve the difficulty and become happier."

"My approach to therapy involves creating a safe space where your concerns and difficulties are met with empathy and freedom from judgment. I use warmth and humor to help facilitate one's self-expression and I believe that therapy should provide an environment in which people feel free and secure to explore the underlying meanings of behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. My role is to guide the therapeutic exploration in order to cultivate empowering insights that reconnect a person to their own inner authority. Therapy can re-gift the innate ability to make new choices, find balance, and live a whole and meaningful life."
