Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care is to be a person-centered therapist, attending to the individual needs and wants of each client. This requires building a solid therapeutic relationship with each person. I include a spiritual context to my therapeutic approach when it is appropriate and rely on the morals and values of my faith to guide me. By keeping an open mind, I use individualized techniques to assist clients in their therapeutic journey rather than using a “cookbook” approach of “one size fits all”. I have worked a great deal with clients as they work to heal from trauma, including childhood sexual abuse. When working with couples and families, the aim is to assist my clients in reaching a richer relationship with one another, beginning with helping each to communicate better and to understand and empathize with the others with whom they seek a stronger relationship. I am a high energy, positive focused person who believes in using this energy in sessions to bring about change, yet also know when compassion and empathy are necessary components for the client. I look forward to working with my clients and enjoy my job immensely. I work hard to be the best therapist I can be and continue to get excited when learning new ways to help my clients achieve their highest potential.
