MY THERAPY BELIEFS
I believe that most people could benefit from some type of therapy and that it is beneficial to have someone help you to see the forest for the trees. I think the most important aspect of therapy is simply the therapist-client relationship, making sure that it’s comfortable and honest.
COMMON TYPES OF CLIENTS I HELP
Common types of clients that I help would be teens and young adults. I also work a great deal with those who are seeking a better balance in life (example: a mom who is trying to balance all of the different roles in her life, or a high level professional trying to manage his/her different areas of life.) My former years of private practice in Colorado included a great deal of work with military officers and helping them to handle the stress and trauma of their work, as well as helping them to manage different career decisions.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A THERAPIST
What I love most about being a therapist is the challenge and variety that each client brings. Every client I see brings a unique experience or struggle and I love being able to have dynamic discussions that challenge both the client and myself. I enjoy being able to research new approaches to help clients and to gain new skills as a therapist.
