Ph.D, LPC-S, LMFT-S, AAMFT-Supervisor
I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen by them, heard by them, to be understood, and touched by them.
My Counseling Approach
In the session, there is a blend of conventional and alternative approaches to help clients reach their personal strengths and goals. The counseling relationship is based on creating an accepting, respectful, warm, collaborative working environment to guide you to re-write new and healthy scripts. The key is to construct opportunities for you to gain insights into personal patterns and simultaneously strengthen connections in relationships. Efforts will focus on helping you explore your strengths and successes and explore effective ways to enhance personal growth and relationship satisfaction.
