My Philosophy

The founding premise of my counseling approach is that we are not our feelings, our thoughts or our bodies, but something more.  We each have a core self which is intrinsically worthwhile, valuable and lovable.  My goal is not just to listen and empathize but to provide clients the tools to use in their daily lives to contact that core self, improve self esteem, coping skills, emotional resilience, relationship satisfaction and family harmony.

 

PROVIDING PROVEN STRATEGIES FOR

PROBLEM SOLVING & PERSONAL GROWTH

 

There is a lot more to counseling than just having someone listen to you, though that is certainly the necessary foundation for a good therapeutic relationship.  My goal is to create a friendly and  supportive environment,  as well as to provide concrete tools which can be used throughout  life to maintain optimal emotional health and well being.  The following are just a few of these tools:

 

  • Cognitive Behavioral Theory & Techniques
  • Brainspotting
  • Tapping/Emotional Freedom Technique
  • Communication Styles & Skills Training
  • Relational Problem Solving for Families & Couples
  • Relaxation & Stress Management Skills
  • Jungian Dream Processing
  • Jungian Active Imagination
  • Relapse Prevention for Depression & Anxiety
