Message to clients

I respect the fact that seeking counseling takes courage. Consequently, my first goal for my clients is to provide a place where it is safe to really open up and where I demonstrate that i want to know their perspetive about the issues they present. I work collaboratively with my clients in the process of their looking at their patterns of behavior and method of dealing with their feelings that are preventing a satisfying, productive life. Through careful listening, questions and feedback delivered with empathy, I make it possible for my clients to choose patterns of behavior that do result in a satisfying, productive life. I consider self-understanding to be a key component in living a healthy life.

I explore my clients' lives in terms of their feelings, relationship experiences with their family of origin and current relationships, level of job satisfaction,, health, means of relaxation, self - expectations and family expectations of them, and, most importantly, their hopes from engaging in the counseling process with me. The fact that I am familiar with many models of counseling, helps me tailor the tratment plan to the needs and personality of my client. My clients have told me that they appreciate that I do not tell them what to do, but rather plant seeds that allow them to reflect on our therapeutic conversations and then make healthier choices in their behaviors and ways of expressing their feelings and needs.
