Counseling

The first thing you will notice when working with me is that I am very direct. I believe in honesty and being real. This is actually the number one quality that my clients tell me that brings them back to see me time and time again.

I consider myself as a relational therapist. This means that I believe all healing comes from the relationship that you have with your therapist. A sacred space is created through providing a safe non-judgmental space in which you can explore what has brought you to this place and time that needs healing. In this space I focus on a strength based approach to understanding you in the context of your culture, your experiences, your personality, and your goals for healing.  As we probe the depths of what has brought you to my office we often will find that what needs healed is ones self. Often times our judgement of ourselves, and of our mistakes keeps us in these dark places. The way into the light of happiness is forgiveness of ourselves, for what we believe we should have done or what we believe we did.

Understanding our own behavior in terms of how it kept us safe, and helped us survive can transform our lives into lives we create, not react too.  I use various methods to guide you to this place of transformation. The most essential ingredient is your desire to be different, and to do different. If this interests you, please give me a call at 605-490-4229.
