Counseling is not just for individuals with serious mental health conditions. Some people essentially "need" therapy in order to function in life, while others could simply benefit from counseling. Many high-functioning, relatively well-adjusted, successful, and content people seek out the serivces of a professional counselor to help them enhance an already fulfilling lifestyle.
Professional counseling is a discipline that integrates the science of human behavior with the art of communication and a compassionate presence. My counseling style is positive, warm, and welcoming, but also practical and solution-focused. I will help you apply the science and art of positive change in practical, real-world scenarios in your life. I strive to maintain a truly evidence-based practice, using and implementing those counseling strategies and approaches that are supported by empirical research. I will tailor my approach to your personality and your priorities, and will borrow from a variety of counseling approaches and theories as appropriate, such as:
- Cognitive Therapy
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
- Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy
- Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
- Imago Relationship Therapy
