Sometimes clients seek counseling with a specific goal in mind and more often they are struggling to name an underlying worry. They are grappling with many challenges of developmental life tasks...
- career development
- changes in relationship
- adapting after a move
- settling into a new job
- contemplating change in substance use
- grieving over a deep loss
These life challenges can be exciting or terrifying or more often a little bit of both. My approach in any of these cases depends on a foundation of trust and mutual respect. In the context of trust, sometimes I look to help clients make connections between early experiences and what's going on in their present life. I also tend to be strengths-based and believe humans possess the ability to cultivate resilience. My style is relational in that I provide therapy as an opportunity for support, guidance and reflection as you work on goals of your choosing. Please peruse my site and give me a call if you think we'd work well together.
