Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families to improve relationships and alleviate personal concerns. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been working in the mental health field since 2005 and have worked with a broad spectrum of emotional and behavioral issues. My philosophy is centered around the saying, “If it’s not broken don’t fix it, if it’s working do more of it, and if it’s not working, do something different.” I provide a supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment in which you will be an active participant in gaining self-awareness and implementing new behaviors that will lead to positive change. My therapeutic style varies depending on what you want and need; however I believe the most important factor is the relationship between therapist and client. Therefore, I work from a collaborative, empathic, and solution-focused approach to assist you with exploring and finding solutions for the challenges you are facing. I use research-based therapeutic methods, which often help people start to feel better within a few sessions. I integrate complementary techniques and interventions to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual, couple, or family to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
