A Unique Approach
My approach is not traditional; I assume clients who meet with me want to find answers. I am also passionate about teaching my clients...teaching them why they do what they do and providing the insight needed to clarify confusion.
So to achieve this we don't waste much time chatting about surface level ideas and thoughts. My clients work hard in therapy to find answers that create solutions so that they can then change their beliefs and feelings, ultimately changing their actions.
My favorite clients to work with are those who want to become real.
My clients come back because they begin to experience the change they seek. Most clients walk out of the sessions with more insight than they walked in with and/or much to contemplate. If you are looking for a therapist who will simply listen and reflect back I'm not for you.
Many of us long to live out our purpose in life - I worked to find mine (my career) and will help you find yours. To do so requires us to be real, honest, candid, seeking and receptive. I care more about your character than your comfort.
GET REAL WITH YOURSELF
Rational thoughts that you know to be true
Emotions are never the basis for decisions
Actions based on truth
Loving God more than yourself
The best way to describe my work and who I am am is "REAL"...
I am honest, direct, kind, and committed. I have experienced struggle and conflict just like everyone.
At the time, I did not understand that my pain had a purpose, and maybe you do not either. But it did, and your does too. And one day you will understand why you had to walk through the pain.
It's important to me to know I have been used to make a difference in someone's life. There is no better feeling.
I believe there is a difference between THE truth and our own truth. In my practice, I operate from THE truth.
I don't believe in providing mediocre service. I believe it's imperative to provide truth. I value discernment and wisdom. I believe your vulnerability is what makes you beautiful...it's what tough people can do. I have a strong faith that must be exercised daily.
I am trained in Post Induction Therapy (PIT, Pia Mellody) a Nationally Certified Parenting Coordinator (NCPC), and every year take workshops from Masters in the field including Bessel van der Kolk (trauma), Gabor Mate (attachment), and Pia Melody (Post Induction Therapy/Codependency/Attachment). I am also a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA).
I am blessed to be a blessing.
