Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
The experience of counseling is a very personal and shared interaction. Counseling provides one with the opportunity for growth and self-discovery in the context of a safe and supportive environment. It is my goal to establish a professional and trusting relationship with my clients. In order to establish this trust, I would like to begin by sharing my background, professional beliefs and techniques and more importantly, your rights as a client. My areas of special interests are working with, trauma, chemical addictions, behavioral addictions, child, teen and family issues and post-traumatic stress disorder. As well as, physical/sexual abuse, anxiety and grief and loss. I provide individual, group and family therapy. I have extensive experience in working with a variety of issues and problems regarding children, adolescents and adults and families.
Counseling provides one with a positive and enlightening and successful experience through a joint effort of determination and courage. The therapeutic process has many benefits such as; insight to self awareness and understanding of thoughts, behaviors and feelings and resolution of conflicts. It is important to understand that during this process there are potential risks. The exploration of past experiences and future decisions can generate uncomfortable feelings and affect significant relationships. We intend to help you through these issues in order to achieve the best possible results. Counseling often requires a great deal of effort on the client in order for change to occur. This includes applying recommended techniques and activities outside of the counseling session in order to maximize the counseling experience.
