My goal is that you walk out with more hope than you walked in with. I like to focus on people's strengths, because I believe it helps them overcome their challenges. But, I recognize people need to talk about challenges, which I listen to with empathy. My office is a no judgement zone!
I have worked in schools, as a school counselor and a special education counselor. I have worked with military and their families, and with people from many cultural and religious backgrounds.
