Welcome to your journey of growth! Whether this is a first-time experience for you, or the continuation of a process, it is my privilege to work with you. As you consider investing time and resources into this journey, it is essential that you know what you can expect of me as your guide and of our work together.
The mental health services I provide are consultative, coaching and educational in nature, and can be short or long-term. Referrals to, and collaboration with, other professionals who provide assessment and specialized treatments are utilized for needs that are beyond my scope of practice.
Four words capture the essence of my approach to the work:
Collaborative.... together we explore the past and present landscape of your life; together we understand and interpret the meaning and impact of your experiences; together we determine the best course of action that will facilitate your ability to thrive.
Holistic.... you are a multi-faceted human being; support, education and resources aimed at mind, body and interpersonal connection will be utilized in your care.
Active.... as your guide, I am an engaged facilitator in your process and not simply a passive set of listening ears; as my client, I expect you to be an engaged participant in the work of transformation both during and between our sessions.
Hopeful.... I firmly believe that suffering, disappointment, pain, confusion and trauma do not have the final word in a human life or in communities; you will experience this hope in the atmosphere of our relationship, even when you cannot believe it for yourself.
I invite you to explore my website and contact me directly with any questions or concerns as you consider embarking on this journey. Much respect and grace to you as you discern your next steps.
