I consider every person and case to be unique, therefore my approach depends on each specific client, the nature of their problems and their needs. I work in a humanistic and integrative way drawing on the perspectives of:
My goal is to create an empathetic, respectful and nonjudgmental space that will enable you to heal, grow and move towards a place of self-empowerment. This space will help you open up, explore, gain perspective, see yourself as a whole person greater than the sum of your parts, accept and reconnect with all parts of yourself, build on your strength, skills and resources, or learn new skills.
I see counseling/therapy as a collaborative relationship between the client and the therapist. You and I in collaboration, not only reach a decision as to which the aims of counseling are, but also constantly re-assess those. While the exact outcomes can be difficult to predict, you can be assured that I will tailor counseling to meet your specific needs and that I will be there to facilitate your unique journey.
