Counseling

My counseling technique tends to be strength based & client-centered with psychoanalytical and cognitive behavioral elements. This means that we build on strengths and acknowledge situations in the past that may be creating a barrier to what you want in your current life. As counselor and client, we identify individual goals of counseling together. Some clients see me weekly, every other week, or monthly, depending on each person's situation and availability of time.
