My goal in therapy is to assist clients in identifying strengths and skills to motivate them and allow them to be lifted up by focusing on the positive rather than being weighed down by negative thoughts and chatter. I work to help clients appreciate themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin, which includes minimizing or eliminating distress and stressors that affect relationships and daily life. My process includes motivational interviewing (MI). I believe people are more than one dimension and balance in all areas of life is needed for homeostasis, which means body, mind, and spirit work. Therefore, I address all of these areas when considering goals. Homework, individual work, and group work all play parts in the path to a healthy balance.
