About

 

I hold a strength-based approach to counseling. Meaning, I focus on your strengths and resourcefulness rather than your weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. I hope to empower you to overcome and heal from your past or current hardships by relying on your inner strengths. Together, we set up goals of what you want improved in your life and create a plan to make progress towards those goals. I am privileged to support you in what you want to gain from counseling.

Counseling sessions are generally about an hour long, once a week, unless other arrangements are made. I am unable to do sessions over the phone or online.

We will jointly create a treatment plan that includes goals you want to gain from counseling. We will review and update it every six months or when therapeutically necessary so that your progress and your specific needs are at the forefront.
