I believe that each individual is unique and special; therefore, I prefer an Eclectic approach to counseling, tailoring the treatment plan to reflect the specific needs and styles of each client. I believe that for a client to benefit from counseling there needs to be a collaborative alliance. I will work together to assess your needs and create a plan. We will monitor your progress together and evaluate the need for more sessions, alternative approaches, additional referral services, or termination.
I believe a trusting working relationship between counselor and client is important and I strive to achieve that collaboration. I am comfortable working with individuals from diverse cultures and lifestyles and feel being accepting, objective, respectful, and genuine are characteristics essential in working with clients.
Overall, counseling is a process in which you, the individual, gain knowledge and tools that will facilitate continued growth and development, after therapy has ended.
