When you carry around negative or unwanted feelings and experiences, they can become too big and can spill out of your pockets.

I approach clients from a solution focus perspective. How we perceive life events often affects how we view ourselves and those around us. Working with clients I focus on letting go of judgment placed upon us by ourselves as well as the judgment we believe is placed upon us by others, helping clients to shift their focus to resolving the conflict within their lives. This helps clients gain awareness of what is within their control opening themselves up to positive experiences within their reach.

As individuals, we have a tendency of focusing and dwelling on our own negative experiences, which can cause us to lose focus on the present, and then ultimately coping with the negative situations inappropriately. As a therapist, I will assist the client on learning how those experiences have impacted your life, while also learning how to identify the appropriate coping skills, changing the thought process about those experiences and therefore learning how manage any future possible stressful situations. Learning how to stay grounded and present can be a very empowering tool as you begin to take back your life.

It is impossible to separate mental health from physical health and both deserve healthy practices.  Everyone gets stuck sometimes, and everyone can benefit from learning more about him or herself. That is why my approach to psychology and counseling is both didactic and proactive. I strive to empower my clients to develop goals, explore potential barriers to success, and keep moving forward.
