My approach to counseling is client-oriented with a focus on positive solutions. I make use of cognitive behavior techniques. Cognitive Behavior Theory is a form of therapy in which you and I would work to solve your current problem(s) and change the negative and unhelpful thoughts and behaviors. It is especially important to me to emphasize and work with your personal strengths and those of your family and community to obtain your desired results.
My goal as a therapist is to educate, inspire and assist people to create positive meaningful lives for themselves. I serve as your experienced guide that provides quality feedback, communicates that it is your responsibility to act, advice in decision making, a menu of actions and or ways of thinking, communicates understanding of your world and provides you with reusable tools that enable self-maintenance and increases your positive effectiveness in life.
