People find themselves thinking about needing mental health counseling for a number of reasons such as feelings of sadness, excessive worry, sleep difficulties, irritability, low energy, loss of interest in activities, or due to problems with relationships. The decision of whether or not to start counseling and who to see, is not an easy one, and can take trial and error in finding the “right fit”. I recognize that there are many options in the Buffalo/Niagara area, but I would like to offer you something different from what you may have experienced or heard about counselors in the past.
Those who have received counseling from me have described me as being nurturing, firm but flexible, empathetic, and able to make them feel understood and validated in their sessions. When appropriate, I bring in the use of self-awareness regarding thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. I allow the therapeutic process to lead us into the areas and interventions that would be most helpful for that person at that time. I view an important goal of the therapeutic process as being able to reach a balance in our lives to feel a state of contentment again, through the choices we make everyday.
