Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that human beings are designed to be in relationships with others. We do best when those relationships are characterized by a healthy value and respect for self and others. I also believe that how we feel and respond is closely linked to what we believe and how we interpret life events. My approach is, therefore, both relational and cognitive. I draw from a variety of therapies, including Cognitive-Behavioral, EMDR, Narrative, Solution-focused, and Play Therapy, in order to meet the needs of my individual clients. As a counselor, I strive to provide the environment, encouragement, and information necessary to help clients overcome obstacles and acquire the skills needed to move forward toward their goals. As a Christian, I also strive to provide a supportive environment for those who want to address spiritual issues and work towards solution that fit within their personal value system.
