If you need some help identifying or putting a name to an issue or issues that you are interested in addressing, click here to view my concern descriptions page, which describes several of the concerns I have helped people address.
Why should I seek counseling through your practice and not somewhere else?
This is an excellent question! And I must start by saying that I’m a firm believer that aside from working with a trained, experienced and licensed counselor, the single greatest factor contributing to a successful and high quality counseling experience is the strength of the relationship you have with your counselor. I make the therapeutic relationship, that I have with with each of my clients, a priority. I believe that it is through the building of a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship, in which you, the client, experience warmth, compassion, positive regard, genuineness, and empathy, combined with a direct yet caring approach, that you experience powerful personal growth and empowerment.
Some other reasons that I feel confident you will feel comfortable working with me include:
I make it a point to only use counseling approaches and techniques that have been supported by years of clinical research and are considered effective and are respected within the field of counseling and psychotherapy. You can rest assured that the approaches I use have been demonstrated to work!
I combine counseling approaches, pulling from several of the most respected and effective counseling approaches developed. I don’t just stick to one approach or style that best suits me, rather I tailor my counseling approach to the individual and unique needs of each of my clients. I take into consideration what you feel works best for you and matches what you are looking for in a counseling experience.
My education and training are in the field of Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis on the development of therapeutic skill and technique, as a generalist. As a result of my training as a generalist, I am comfortable working individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds to address a wide range of issues and concerns.
I offer convenient appointment times that will prevent you from having to take time away from work, school or other daytime activities. I currently offer evening appointments and am happy to schedule recurring appointments so that you may keep the same appointment time each week that we meet.
I offer secure online video-conferencing counseling appointments for clients who are traveling, are temporarily relocating, move out-of-town, or live in another city, but would like to work with me. I’m so pleased to be able to offer an alternative to ending therapeutic relationships with clients who move out-of-town and are unable to visit my practice for in-person appointments. Through my client’s stories, I have come to realize that it can be hard to continue counseling with another therapist, especially after you have established a trusting relationship with a counselor who knows where you have been, how far you’ve come and where you would like to head in your life. Additionally, I have also enjoyed and really value being able to connect and work with clients who do not have the option to meet with me in-person due to living a distance away from my office. For online sessions, I use Thera-LINK, a HIPPA compliant and web-based video conferencing application, which is both secure and works on any computer that is connected to the internet and has a webcam. If you are wondering whether or not online counseling is right for you, contact me today and set up an online consultation to try it out!
