Personal Counseling Statement
I have come to work in counseling later in life after experiencing my own mental health challenges and significant life transitions. I view most client issues through a developmental, biological, and social perspective, believing that most behaviors and conditions are not pathological, but rather what would be expected in the client’s situation.
I take a non-judgmental and holistic-integrated approach, committed to the notion that we cannot separate mind, soul, and body when it comes to wellness and mental health. I believe in a person-centered approach to therapy, with the client as a co-equal in a shared journey toward self-efficacy, resilience, and a life worth living. I have learned that each client presents his/her/their own unique set of circumstances, history, proclivities, etc., and that an integrative approach (using and/or combining different therapeutic modalities) offers the most flexibility and likelihood of achieving therapeutic goals.
I have extensive personal experience with marriage and family systems, addiction, attachment issues, human development, life and career transition, coaching, multicultural dynamics, and educational approaches to behavioral change. I believe in integrated therapy, using Cognitive (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior (DBT) approaches, emotional catharsis, reality therapy, and client empowerment. I also work as a client advocate when appropriate, with full understanding that mental health outcomes are influenced by social and environmental context.
My primary motivation is to use my own experience, discovery, and healing to help others.
