I believe our experiences greatly shape our perception of the world and how we interact with it. The culture we grow up in is often our framework for we interpret day to day interactions. Exploring our culture and experiences helps us gain insight into why we feel the way we do and gives us power to choose the path we take moving forward. I believe in focusing on the strengths people have within them to reframe difficult issues and grow in a purposeful direction. A good connection between the client and therapist is essential in providing fertile ground for clients to grow. I try to avoid using technical jargon and try to communicate in a way that is most easily accessible to the client. I also enjoy helping clients resolve traumatic experiences and helping to make painful thoughts, feelings, and memories not hurt so much.
