My Expert Service
I am committed to helping you fully express yourself and to finding solutions to your problems that work for you.
I tend to be more interactive than many counselors and strive to be clear and direct, down-to-earth and practical.
I use a number of techniques, including Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused and Client Centered Therapy, selecting from each as it seems appropriate.
However, I have found that techniques are not as important as the working alliance that the counselor and the client build together.
I strive to create a private, non-judgmental environment that feels like a natural, normal conversation, but turns out to be like no other conversation you've ever had.
I try to challenge you to think about your troubling issues in a different way.
I will invite you to give me feedback as we go along so that I can alter my approach to make our sessions more effective in achieving your goals.
By reading my website, you already know something about me. Please tell me something about you and what we could work on together.
