About My Clients
My specialties include anxiety, communication, coping skills, life transitions, self-acceptance, self-direction, and stress management. I work with new parents or parents-to-be, millennials experiencing transitional life changes, individuals looking for more fulfillment with dating and relationships, adults seeking strategies to alleviate the intensity, frequency, and duration of anxiety, and career professionals, business owners, and high achievers interested in better managing stress.
My Background and Approach
I strive to deliver compassionate counseling with sincere dedication to service, and to do so as efficiently as possible in order to help alleviate stress and anxiety, and encourage emotional independence. My practice, Keys to Counseling, is rooted in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). REBT is a goal-oriented therapeutic approach that promotes emotional wellness by helping people to challenge and replace self-defeating beliefs with healthier alternatives. REBT is generally shorter-term, solution-focused, and present-centered which makes it an excellent choice for those who not only wish to FEEL better, but to GET better. In life's most challenging moments, there is no better advocate to have in your corner than an empathetic and resourceful counselor who gives you the tools to ultimately become your own best therapist. No matter your reason for seeking counseling, it would be an honor to support and empower you on this journey!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My goal is to empower all of my clients by helping them to understand that while I am an expert in identifying irrational beliefs, unhealthy emotions, and unhelpful behaviors, YOU ARE THE EXPERT ON YOUR OWN LIFE, and together we can collaborate in the development of powerful coping strategies for the plethora of challenges that life inevitably throws our way. As your therapist, counseling is a journey that we will embark on together, and by the end of this expedition, you will learn that you possess the power to create the world that you desire for yourself: it is all within your thoughts.
