I begin with establishing trust in an empathetic atmosphere. My approach is to work on problem solving that can result in improvements soon after beginning therapy. I believe in giving feedback that is helpful for clients to work on change. I bring many years of experience into helping people. I have worked in several different settings including out patient mental health and substance abuse as well as inpatient treatment. It is very encouraging for clients to begin work on problems and experience progress in making changes.
I offer a supportive approach for clients. I try to provide an environment to inspire your trust and to begin the work on resolving life issues as soon as possible. Negative feelings can sabotage happiness and fulfillment in achieving personal goals. Counseling begins with identifying the goals you would like to achieve and agree to work on.
I am passionate about working with addictions and mental health issues. I also work with depression and mood disorders. I would like to help clients make improvements in their health problems and see the benefits of those improvements by meeting their goals. You can find more happiness in your life, relationships, employment, and other areas to develop.
