One of the most important features of life is conversation. Through conversation we form and reform our life experiences; we create and recreate our meanings and understandings; and we construct our realities and ourselves. When possibility is enhanced… we can take the necessary action to address what concerns or troubles us… and accomplish what we want. – Harlene Anderson
The above quote from a respected colleague is the foundation that influences my clinical practice as a professional. Through my experience, I have to come to learn that counseling is most beneficial when possibilities of hope, healing, and action are developed through meaningful conversations. I see that my role as a therapist is to help patients to explore their life’s narratives such that it enables them to explore new alternatives in order to develop new meaning in theirs lives.
My primary focus in private practice is individuals and couples dealing with a variety of relationship issues, including but not limited to: infidelity, domestic violence, and trauma. I plan to achieve, through meaningful conversation, the healing of such wounds. In other words, enabling these couples to heal from their hurt and pain and transition to a healthier stage in their relationship.
Ultimately, it is my passion to meet you where you are at and through meaningful conversation get you where you want to be in your life.
