I provide caring and professional counseling services to adults, children, couples,and families using individual or group therapy. I believe that each person should be treated with the utmost respect.
I utilize numerous psychological theories and methods in my work depending on the needs and beliefs of each individual client. However, my theorectical approach of choice would be of the Humanistic tradition. I favor a combination of Client-Centered and Gestalt orientations. These two models are the ones that anchor my orientation to counseling. Dreamwork, journaling and creative arts are among the tools that I use to assist the client in their journey to self understanding and the continuation of growth in their lives.
“ Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is...The only problem in your life is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds.” Dan Millman
