I believe healing begins by experiencing unconditional acceptance and understanding in a counseling relationship. As your counselor I will create a warm, inclusive, respectful, and safe environment as we work together to gain insight into your current struggles. Together we will explore how past events have shaped your beliefs, self perception and behaviors affecting current relationships and your ability to cope with past and present challenges. With this insight you can begin to increase self awareness and acceptance. We will work together to strengthen
the skills you already possess and develop new
strategies to help navigate through the
tragedies and challenges in your life.
