Description of Counselor/Practice

The first step to healing is seeking self-discovery. Throughout life we often face several challenges that may seem to be too much to bear on our own and interferes in our quality of life. Focus Counseling was created to assist every day people who deal with life circumstances and gives them a safe place to explore their inner thoughts and feelings. My approach begins with building a trusting therapeutic relationship with clients and meeting them where they are. There is no right or wrong starting point !! and clients benefit from knowing they are supported every step of the way. Throughout the counseling process, clients begin making positive changes through self-exploration, learning positive copings skills, addressing behavioral changes, improving relationships and practicing self-care. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I work to empower clients by using a variety of therapeutic modalities specific to their needs. Interventions include, Person-Centered, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Spirituality. Through this holistic approach, clients can discover new meanings and gain self-awareness to transform their lives. Call for a free 20-minute consultation and begin your journey today!
