Finding a therapist can be the first step in a journey of healing and self discovery. The process of finding a therapist can become overwhelming. Who will I choose? How do I decide? I believe that each individual needs to feel comfortable with whom ever they choose. Some things to know about me:
-I believe in you. It is possible for anyone to get a little lost, but we all have the power to make changes in our lives and the ability to get back on track. Most of us just need a little guidance, motivation and hope. I can help with that.
-Kindness is important. Often times in relationships, we can say unkind things to each other or to ourselves. I can help you refocus that energy to be more positive. We will work through the anger and resentments together.
-Having gratitude is essential, however sometimes it can be really difficult. I get that.
-I believe that when someone focuses on self-care and making changes for themselves, they can see great changes in all areas of their life.
-I take a holistic approach to working with people. I believe in the mind/body connection.
My Counseling Philosophy:
I have been trained in a variety of thoughts of practice. I mostly work toward providing my clients with practical skills, specifically cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe that although our past experiences help to shape our thoughts, that we actually have the ability to change them. I also believe that learning to be fully present in the moment can lead to more joy and I help others to learn this by incorporating mindfulness techniques into sessions. Most importantly, I come from a strengths perspective, which means we build upon your existing strengths.
I look forward to meeting with you. Please call me for a free phone consultation at 585-208-8140.
