PHILOSOPHY AND METHODS OF TREATMENT
I believe in a client’s strength and ability to work through his or her issues. I believe that having someone to provide guidance and compassion encourages growth. I believe that “talking out” problems helps us better understand ourselves so that we may begin to heal. I believe we have choices in every situation, and that choice implies control. Finally, I believe what we tell ourselves and our ability to change our beliefs and feelings empowers us to change our lives.
My methods of treatment are geared towards the client’s need. My methods include focusing on the influence of self-talk and belief systems, changing behaviors, learning skills such as anger management and communication. I am a “person-centered” therapist. I am genuine, present, understanding, and empathic. Together we will find a solution.
