Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Counseling provides a safe supportive environment to gain insight and awareness, to learn new resources and tools and to create opportunities for positive growth and change. I use a variety of techniques, theories, and experience to help clients reach their goals. I recognize the benefit in acknowledging and reinforcing each individual's strengths and resources. My goal as a therapist is to shift destructive patterns and improve levels of functioning, leading to a higher quality of life. My 15 years of experience, ongoing training and professional support, my love of the work that I do and my belief in the healing process all contribute to my success as a therapist. I have worked in private practice for the last six years primarily with adults, teens and couples. I am trained in and use EMDR and Lifespan Integration, effective ways of helping individuals overcome self-defeating beliefs, integrate trauma and enhance performance.
