In my practice, I use a number of techniques that are tailored to each person, depending on their needs, and what works for them. My experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far, is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles. I am a firm believer that self-awareness can assist in growing through difficult experiences . Sometimes another person can offer a new or different perspective or additional support, that can externalize a difficult situation or subject, and it would be my privilege to be that person for you. We, as humans, want to be loved, accepted, respected, and feel listened to and understood. I strive to be both non-judgmental and accepting when someone feels safe enough to share their story or experiences with me. How we interact with ourselves and others, is so important and worthy, and is useful to explore in counseling.
