What I Can Do For You
Life presents each of us with never-ending challenges and sometimes professional support can ease the transition through difficult situations. I can offer you a patient and non-judgmental place to talk about your situation and to discover and appreciate your own personal path to growth using your unique strengths and preferences.
Change can be unsettling but it is a precursor to personal growth. I believe that the relationship between counselor and client is collaborative; we must establish trust together. I will assure your confidentiality and privacy. Since I believe that change is possible in a collaborative relationship, I practice in a cognitive behavioral, person-centered style. I will help you clarify elements of your situation that can be changed, and I will help you discover your own realistic options for growth.

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
