I am eclectic in my counseling approach and utilize different counseling models such as, Person-centered therapeutic approach, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Evidence-Based Treatment, Solution focused Treatment Approach and so on. My skill as a good communicator has been an asset in my practice. I believe in listening empathetically and providing the necessary supported needed by my client. I also belief that the solution to peoples’ problems come from themselves, while I assist the client to identify for themselves causes for their problems and for them to make good choices. I work with persons of any race, gender, sexual orientation, and religion; for I belief in equality of human beings.
I am particularly interested in working with couples as the bulk of my clientele are of this group; and this has provided me with a broad and diverse knowledge on the common problems faced by couples with different background and or ethnicity.
