Counseling Philosophy:
“Life presents challenges. Sometimes a choice is made that can cause one to travel down a dark path.”

In therapy we can work together to discover how to bring the light in and drive the darkness out. A therapeutic alliance is formed by working together. A simple effective way to build a therapeutic alliance is to listen. Everyone needs to be heard. To be able to hear what is being said and what is not being said. Voices that have become silent have the right to be heard.

Driving with positive forces will bring about positive change. Change can be challenging, but by working together with positivity and light, we can brighten the path to peace, happiness, and a balanced lifestyle.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.” MLK Jr.
