I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years of experience in helping people find solutions to their problems. Over the years, I have been told by clients that they really feel that I am listening to them and trying to understand what is going on in their lives and how they feel. Clients have also told me that they do not feel any sense of judgment, but rather that I accept them for who they are and where they are in their life’s journey.
So many times in couple's counseling, communication is a key issue, and one of my big focus points will be assisting the two of you in communicating well, listening to what the other is saying, and improving your communication so you may enhance your relationship and work better together as a couple. I also stress that my role is not to "take sides" or label one partner or the other as the "problem," but that you have issues as a couple and need to work through them TOGETHER.
My style is empathetic and solution focused. I will spend time asking you questions in order to get to know you and try to find out what is at the heart of your issue. Together, we will talk about possible avenues you may want to take, or changes you may want to consider. I may give you some “homework” assignments…things to write out or think about, worksheets to complete, or even techniques/exercises to practice in your own time so that some of what we discuss in our sessions is reinforced.
Most of all, I will be an objective listener, helping you to gain insight into what is going on with you, so that you are able to make the choices and changes you want to, in your own time.
I look forward to working with you!
