A BIT ABOUT THERAPY & COUNSELLING

“A JOURNEY OF 1000 MILES BEGINS WITH ONE STEP”

Congratulations for taking your first courageous step towards seeking help.

 

Therapy is about the individual/couple and therapist working together requiring an investment from both. Helping persons adopt new attitudes toward fear, pain, and feelings of despair, learning how to re-frame thoughts and becoming mindful can result in life-altering results.  I incorporate holistic, healing-centered, Emotion-Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral therapeutic approaches to facilitate self- exploration, self-understanding, and knowledge of contextual factors while supporting steps towards changing self-defeating behavior.
