Welcome to my professional information page!
My desire as a psychotherapist is to better help you in facing challenging and difficult times by embracing these opportunities for growth through proper support, encouragement, and skill building to help you achieve a happier, more balanced life. Combining these modalities along with integrative, interpersonal, and transpersonal psychotherapies is incorporated to tailor counseling sessions to my clients' needs. My goals in therapy are to find the sources of the negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are causing blocks to a functional life style. I like to use a collaborative approach with my clients in order to explore a client's strengths and to help educate the client on new methods of coping with life's challenges.
I have experience in working with people who are going through major life changes and are finding it difficult to cope and function in their new environment or life situation. It is my goal is to help clients find their strengths and learn new coping skills so they can move from simply surviving into thriving.
