COUNSELING PHILOSOPHY:
I am a psychotherapist who’s style is open, honest, warm, and down to earth!  I derive from many theoretical approaches-mostly person-centered and solution-focused theories. I exhibit sensitivity and compassion towards your life challenges and strongly believe that there are workable solutions to all circumstances.  I am available to assist you with your present lifestyle, set goals, and formulate a workable treatment plan.  Along with the clients motivation and cooperation, we will work together to discover your strengths and abilities and apply those gifts towards your everyday life so that you may reach your full potential.
 
With the client as an active participant, we will work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and conflicts so that you will intentionally stay motivated for change and success.  I am available as your psychotherapist to assist you as you face certain circumstances and difficulties in your life.  Even though there are many circumstances that come up in our lives some which are beyond our control, we eventually have to intentionally find a way to maintain balance and move forward in life. 
 
Please remember, in order to be successful, one must think and act successful!  Psychotherapy is about intentionally taking the time out for yourself to develop and evolve into your personal best.  There are many individuals whom have learned coping strategies and techniques to overcome the most challenging circumstances in their life.  You can be one of those individuals in this journey. 
 
Take charge of your life!!  Give yourself the quality time needed to intentionally change your life so that you may have a life filled with growth, hope, love, and joy.
