My approach to counseling will vary depending upon the nature of my client’s needs and difficulties. Given my familiarity with crisis work and brief therapeutic contact, I am comfortable treating clients on a short-term basis, if that is indicated. However, I also recognize that some work takes additional time with a therapist in order to explore issues in a greater depth and to generate lasting and meaningful change. I believe my greatest strengths lie in the relationship with my clients, and I am an exceedingly empathic and compassionate clinician. Additionally, our work will be guided by current standards held for treating specific issues.
