About Therapy

My philosophy is based on accepting my clients where they are when they enter counseling.  Each individual is unique, with different needs and a different history, so each counseling experience will be unique as well.  

 

My foundation is in Humanistic-Existential Theory. This includes considering the whole person, working from their strengths and helping them to achieve health and well-being.  I provide a supportive environment for them to express their thoughts and feelings without judgement. 

 

I believe that everyone needs to feel that they are valued, that they have some connection to others and that their lives are meaningful. I utilize counseling techniques that best fit the individual and situation.
