GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST
WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST
I BECAME A THERAPIST TO HELP OTHERS DISCOVER THEIR STRENGTHS AND UNIQUE TALENTS, AND WORK TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CLIENT AND THERAPIST ALLOWS CLIENTS TO TRULY BE SEEN, ACCEPTED AND CARED FOR, EVEN IN LIFE’S DARKEST MOMENTS.
I believe as the client, you are the expert of your own life and I am here to support you in discovering and revealing your most authentic self in order to achieve your goals. Therapy is a place where you can find support and reassurance as you explore what gives your life meaning and what might be holding you back from finding happiness and fulfillment at this time.
When I work with clients, I incorporate THREE THINGS to create positive change:
compassion | support | collaboration
WHO I WORK WITH
I work with adults and teens experiencing anxiety, depression, life challenges, and major life changes. I also work with couples who are experiencing challenges in their relationship and those who want to prepare for marriage.
My area of expertise is helping individuals improve their sense of identify and self-esteem to discover happiness.
HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THERAPY?
