As a professional counselor, I believe in the power of each individual to overcome barriers that prevent their life pathway from taking a more positive direction. I am invested in creating a calm and safe haven where growth and improvement can occur. Using a person-centered approach requires understanding the perspective patients have about issues in their lives to foster open, honest communication within a therapeutic relationship. When people feel comfortable expressing their emotions, an effective counselor is able to gain knowledge of how that person views their problems.
I believe that therapy is a calling, not just a profession. Therapy helps develop healthy boundaries, learn limits of one's personal control, and increase personal self-awareness, enabling people to heal from past traumas, forgive themselves for past wrong-doings, overcome codependency and recover from addictions and depression.
I believe that empathetic understanding and validation are the catalysts of positive change. It is my role as a Licensed Professional Counselor to offer guidance, insightful feedback and promoting patients to utilize coping skills related to their specific issues for positive behavioral changes.
