Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work from a strength-based perspective, which uses the client’s history as a guide, but focuses on finding practical ways to bring healing and hope to their present challenges. Rather than adopting a passive "reflective-listener" role, I actively collaborate with my clients throughout our work together. My typical treatment process begins with a multi-dimensional assessment. The assessment includes extensive history gathering and asking the client to complete various questionnaires that provide me information vital to the development of an accurate diagnostic perspective of the presenting symptoms and issues. I then work with the client to develop clear goals for our work together, identifying what specific changes will signal that desired progress is being made. I approach treatment from the perspective that genetics, temperament, and family dynamics influence a person's response to difficult experiences. In treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder, I find that individuals have significant characteristics of resiliency and strength that have been overshadowed in attempts to cope with life stressors. My treatment process involves identifying and disrupting distorted response patterns in order to restore appropriate self-worth, realistic optimism, and relational health.
