I believe the counseling room is a safe environment for healing conversations to take place. I believe that therapeutic conversations can facilitate a re-connection to one's true self and bring about lasting change.
I believe in the power of nature as an ally in facilitating well-being.
What has influenced my approach:
Nature-informed psychotherapy (aka Ecotherapy)
Cutting edge neuroscience to overcome anxiety/stress and trauma
Award winning knowledge of diversity and multicultural issues
Spiritually integrated Ph.D program
The objectives of my counseling practice are to:
a)address behavioral and psychological issues that are impacting peoples’ lives
b)address individual needs, note progress and launch treatment goals
c)encourage self-reflection, openness to change and a sense of individual responsibility for ones personal growth and meaningfulness in life.
d)advocate for a personal model of wellness that incorporates self-care and stress management.
e)recognize the suffering (e.g. depression, anxiety, loss and grief, marriage or parenting difficulties, low self-esteem, problematic emotions)
f)create a caring and safe environment to process therapeutic material
g)equip people with tools to manage anger, anxiety or panic
h)call attention to maladaptive thought processes and other obstacles to optimum functioning
