Specialties

Professional Objectives

“I believe that clients deserve treatment from a counselor who views their work as more than a job; they deserve genuine care, compassion, and respect. I hold the belief that clients should be met where they are and should be encouraged to make positive decisions for themselves in order to promote empowerment and continued motivation for change. I feel that quality and an excellent standard of care should be first and foremost, in addition to continuously improving and seeking additional ways to advance programs and client care.”

Theoretical Orientation

“I feel that theoretical orientation should be dependent upon the individual’s situation, specific needs, and preferences. That being said, I find that I most commonly employ the principles of Person-Centered Counseling and Rational Emotion Behavior Therapy. Through these theories, individuals can be productive in their own change process. I believe that a counselor should guide individuals throughout the counseling process and should be someone that can provide insight and encouragement. It is also essential to establish rapport and create a sense of openness and safety. The next step would be to explore possible causes for the individual’s symptoms and how they have manifested themselves in the client’s life. The counselor then helps the client develop rational and accurate beliefs about these issues as well as develop skills in therapy that the client can continue to practice after the sessions have ended. I feel that these theories teach the individual skills that will help them view situations in a more productive manner. These theories also involve improving self-esteem as well as a sense of self-competence.”
