I believe there is tremendous potential for personal exploration and growth within each person. My role as a counselor is to assist those individuals, couples, families, and groups that are motivated to make changes and be able to meet their identified goals. I also believe that in order for progress to be made in therapy, one must find a sense of meaning and purpose for their lives, as well as find practical strategies and skills for working through immediate life circumstances. In addition, for therapy to be beneficial, it is important for the client and counselor to agree upon and mutually commit to a general course of action, regardless of the particular approach or technique. It is my endeavor to utilize various approaches and techniques in order to best serve the needs of the client.
