As a licensed clinical counselor in NC and VA, my career of 25 years has been devoted to helping others through talk therapy and goal-setting. Couples and families come to counseling with a variety of feelings and reasons for issues they experience. Thus, my treatment approach is individualized for each group, since everyone is unique and has their own “stories" to combine with their own personal relationships.
In order to successfully reach goals and change the thoughts or behaviors affecting feelings in relationships, I generally use cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing approaches. Using these builds rapport and keeps the focus on partnering with clients to process and encourage changes together where it is beneficial.
I can help by listening, clarifying, working together, and giving clients tools to use throughout relationships in life. It is my firm belief that anyone can benefit from 'seeing' a mental health provider (the same as physical health)!
