I focus on creating a counseling relationship that is one of openness and partnership. My role will be to provide an environment that allows you to feel safe as I join you on a journey of exploring what is working for you and what is not working for you. I want to explore areas where you feel stuck and cannot seem to see a way through whether it is an issue within a relationship, a personal struggle, or a life situation. My goal is help you achieve your goals. I will not be imposing my values on the counseling relationship. I am here to respect your values, choices, and goals.
As a counselor, I will be using a holistic approach that is informed by the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) which looks at the interconnectedness of our minds, bodies, and relationships. I will use cognitive behavioral therapy where we explore the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that are holding clients from living the authentic life they desire to live. I may incorporate sandtray therapy into the counseling sessions which allows the client to explore their inner world without being constrained to the use of language. My goal is to meet the unique needs of each client with the therapeutic approach that works for them.
