My Personal Beliefs and Interests

"After working over a decade in the mental health field, I found two concepts to be true: unconditional positive regard is one of the most healing ingredients of psychotherapy and thoughts are powerful! Unconditional positive regard is the acceptance of the client, no matter what they do or think, believing that each client is inherently good. Thoughts and beliefs drive human behavior. Teaching clients the power of their thoughts and beliefs is advantageous to living a happy and healthy life. By targeting beliefs, thought and behavior changes and clients become more at ease, more confident, resilient, and successful in their daily life."

I offer online counseling in the following states:
