"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom," Viktor Frankl. Everything that life throws at us can be overwhelming. Having a person to talk to in a safe, non judgmental space is important for maintaining overall wellness. Making the decision to seek help is a huge step and very empowering, congratulations!

In practice for 40 years I have a friendly, laid back approach that encourages clients to share openly about their concerns. In the first few sessions I find it of utmost value to cover some key concerns. Stabilization (anxiety/depression, intensity, when started?) -Coping skills (How is the person dealing with emotional, mental and physical stress?) -Family background (What important issues occurred that still impact the individual?) I then use techniques and resources that will help clients manage, solve and restore the issues. I enjoy treating faith-based individuals, but I also see a number of a-religious people.
