Counseling Philosophy

    As an individual, couple and family therapist, I primarily conduct sessions with a strength-based and brief therapy model.  This means I will help you focus on reaching specific goals.  I utilize cognitive-behavioral and emotion-focused techniques, and incorporate spiritual components in treatment as is important for particular clients.  I am also an EMDR-trained practitioner.  I welcome collaboration and any questions you have throughout our sessions.  I encourage all clients to be active members in sessions—ask questions, tell me your experiences and how you view things; this is integral to building a positive therapist-client relationship.  In our sessions, I will facilitate self-discovery and collaborate with you to find solutions that will work for change.  As needed, I also offer information or alert clients to potential drawbacks involved in certain choices.  Ultimately, the success and length of treatment depend upon my efforts as the clinician and your efforts as a client.  In my experience, the most effective work involves clients who are willing and open toward making changes in their lives; research shows that a client’s own willingness and personal resources (strengths) are the primary indicator of a successful outcome in counseling.  Other factors important in successful counseling outcomes can be seen in the chart below:
