Sometimes we all need a safe place to explore fears, vulnerabilities and gain clarity. I strongly believe in the benefits of counseling for those who seek out change and fulfillment in their lives. I find that to have a successful and healthy client/counselor relationship, it is essential to create a safe environment free of judgment where one can feel comfortable exploring their fears, breaking old patterns and nurturing their passions.
I have focused on adolescents and couples. I have a strong background in anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem and bullying. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) & find it to be the most successful evidenced based therapy used in couples counseling. In addition to EFT, I have focused my continuing education on Dementia, Depression & Older Adults.
My goal as a counselor has always been to participate in an environment that focuses on promoting wellness in others. One thing I have found through my counseling experience, exploration and continuing education is that everyone, young & old, have a desire to feel needed, loved and heard.
