Helping individuals heal, energize and become aware of their strengths.
We utilize a strengths based approach focusing on one's perceptions surrounding the challenge or problem. Once the problems and emotions are identified, A careful examination of what may or may not, be true is made. Deciding what are one's truthful beliefs, allows for a creative approach to finding the best possible outcomes; as well as knowing more about ourself and ability to solve future challenges.
The promise will be that I will do my best, to develop the kind of honest, professional and therapeutic relationship, that can safely shine some light on areas of life demanding our attentions. We have a responsibility to "act" in our best interests for problem solving. When we do, we are stronger.
"If I am not for myself, who will be;
[and] If not now, when?"

The focus here, will be on you. we will collaborate together, to identify, understandI and become aware of unique strengths within each of us. Often what is perceived as wrong, causes us to think about our troubles to the point of believing "We" are wrong. We all experience problems, and there are always solutions, we rely upon ourselves to find them. A person's inner strengths. are what allow them to solve a problem before it becomes overwhelming. We humans, take actions to better our lives.. This practice will offer a neutral and safe space to improve your abilities. I will offer myself as a guide,, listening to your concerns, and collaborate with you, a plan of action for what you seek.
I use a strengths-based approach in working with clients and their perceptions. What is actually "Right" with you. A carpenter must have tools. The courage to seek out counseling, to look at and talk about, what you may go to extremes to avoid. The self-respect involved in the willingness to speak a truth, your truth.
The reasons for seeking counseling will be attended to in such a way as to clarify the problems, explore and identify any patterns which inevitably arise when we are stuck, or refuse, oddly enough, to find some resolution. We will, determine your potential solutions, and implement those solutions, take some meaningful steps toward making a difference - achieving result.
I believe people are much stronger than they might know, and entirely capable of improving their lives "If," they take the time to think about the problem, gather knowledge, increase an interest in seeking out, experiencing creative ways to approach our challenges.
I promise to be with you during this phase of your journey. My goal is form a relationship of Truth, as best possible; so you may willingly, look at the hard emotions: the shame, guilt, the sorrow, and the Fears. Their are more negative emotions, like contempt and disgust, however there are beautiful ones also. There are emotions which can lift ones spirits, creating perhaps a lasting shift in mood for a minute, an hour, a day? Our moods can be very fragile. We can explore your vulnerabilities, learn the difference between a feeling state and an emotion, fear and anxiety, the necessity of forgiveness in order to express love. Nothing limits our ability to experience evolving love like shame. And nothing destroys human contentment, meaningful living like deceit. These are not my perspective; the first book in the Hebrew bible taught us primarily about the nature of deceit and int impact. If this little bit of information interests you, we might work well together.. Develop a collaboration with a purpose to help you grow from your struggles, learn from them, develop strategies, new ways of looking what we face; Implement the changes you think may be good for you, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
