"When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change." ~Wayne Dyer: Changing our perspective can be a powerful asset in shifting our own actions, interactions and reactions to the challenges and/or stressors of life. Entering into therapy can be overwhelming and a bit scary; but it can also be a great opportunity to understand where you have been, consider where you are in this moment, and to work toward making conscious choices about your path toward the future, where it goes & what it looks like. What changes do you want to make? What goals do you want to achieve? What does it mean to YOU to feel better?
As a therapist I am a collaborator; our work together will be interactive & dynamic. I encourage clients to be open, honest, willing to learn, to grow & change. I will provide you a safe space to explore &challenge how/what you think & feel as well as how you react & respond to everyday stressors with a goal of learning skills & strategies for healthy coping
I believe my relate-able personality and style allows me to work successfully with a developmental spectrum of individuals and adapt my counseling approach, activities and interventions to meet and address the expressed needs of my clients. I work to create a relationship that is built on mutual respect, trust and acceptance. You will not walk alone.
