Helping People

I work with people who come for counselling for a variety of reasons.

  • They frequently report symptoms of depression like low energy, difficulties sleeping, unhappiness, and a lot of negative beliefs about themselves.
  • Relationships are often in turmoil and career paths are uncertain.
  • Others just feel that something is missing in their life and want to find more focus or purpose in their life.

My approach to counselling is grounded in my faith that people are intrinsically worthy, are able to make sound decisions, have successful relationships, and create the life they want.

I believe that people, often through a series of life events, have lost faith in themselves which tends to lead to unhappiness and conflict. I focus on peoples' strengths, as people often loose sight of their gifts.

I integrate a variety of treatment methods into therapy including cognitive behavior, humanistic, family of origin, and systems therapy. I encourage people to examine their own behavior and changes they can make to develop more loving and fulfilling relationships.

I believe we need to grieve and mourn our losses, and eventually the darkness will be lifted, and we can again see the blessings in our life. Crisis can be viewed as learning opportunities for growth, and can lead to a happier more fulfilling life.
