Hello, I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. For the last seventeen years I have worked in public service, this includes educating beneficiaries to empower themselves, their family, and the community. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I help serve individual and couples with various mental health concerns.
The primary therapeutic method I employ is Client Centered Therapy. The fundamental principle of this approach is that individuals possess the inherent ability for self-awareness, personal growth, and self-direction. As a therapist, my role involves creating a supportive and nonjudgmental atmosphere, enabling clients to openly delve into their emotions, thoughts, and life experiences. Instead of giving advice or interpretations, I act as a facilitator, encouraging clients to discover their own solutions and insights autonomously.
I usually work with individuals and couples who are facing various stressors in their lives, which encompass relationship challenges, workplace issues, infidelity, trust-related problems, matters concerning the LGBTQ+ community, and cultural concerns. My therapeutic approach aims to provide support and guidance to help clients navigate these difficulties and find positive resolutions to their unique situations. By fostering a trusting and nonjudgmental environment, I strive to empower clients to explore their emotions, thoughts, and experiences, ultimately promoting personal growth and well-being.
My communication style
As a therapist, I prioritize creating a warm, empathetic, and nonjudgmental environment for my clients. I aim to establish a safe space where clients feel comfortable and supported to express themselves openly and honestly. My approach is centered around understanding and respecting the unique experiences and perspectives of each individual or couple. Overall, my therapeutic style is grounded in respect, empathy, and genuine care for each individual's well-being. I strive to create a positive therapeutic experience that supports clients in their journey towards emotional healing, increased self-awareness, and achieving their personal goals.
My goals for you
When approaching goal setting with clients, my focus is on collaboration and client empowerment. I believe that clients should be actively involved in the goal-setting process as they are the experts on their own lives and experiences.
My first session with you
During the first session with me, clients can expect a welcoming and supportive environment that is focused on understanding their needs and concerns. The first session is primarily an opportunity for me to get to know the client and their concerns better. It sets the stage for a collaborative therapeutic journey where we work together towards achieving their goals and promoting positive change in their lives. Throughout the process, I prioritize providing a supportive and nonjudgmental space where clients can feel heard, validated, and respected.
