My Personal Beliefs and Interests
"The first step to getting anywhere is deciding you're not willing to stay where you are." Your taking this step to connect with me demonstrates courage and a desire to be your best. I commend you, and thank you for considering DuraCARE Counseling to join on this journey. My philosophy of counseling is based on principles of mutual respect, honesty, collaboration, and genuineness. I believe helping persons feel better and do better is a holistic process. My approach as a clinician is to focus on the entire person-mind, body and spirit. I practice from a cognitive-behavioral foundation which is profoundly influenced by bio-psychosocial principles. I also work comfortably from a solution-focused perspective when using it appropriately meets the needs of my client. In counseling sessions, the entire person-physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and occupational health are explored to help illicit growth and positive change. My aim is to help clients achieve balance .
