My Counseling Philosophy:

“I have always felt a strong sense of compassion for others and a desire to help guide, protect, and advise so that people can live the best life they foresee for themselves. However, one of the things that stuck with me the most while in training and going to school was that therapy isn’t all about solving the world’s problems or having every answer in the book. It’s learning how to help others help themselves. The example used was a dark room with a light switch. The client is attempting to turn on the light switch in this dark room. It is not ideal for the therapist to automatically turn on the light for them, as they will not have learned or accomplished anything. It is pertinent to walk with them through the darkness, each and every step, providing reassurance and guidance, until the client can turn on the light switch themselves. You have the capability inside you to accomplish anything, and I will be here to help you realize that potential.”
