My philosophy is to meet the client where he/she is and allow the individual to explore the direction he/she want to go. My goal to become a partner with the client to assist him/her in resolving his/her issues. My integrative training allows me to assist a client and family members dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues. Over the years, I have found that the client centered approach has proven to be effective by allowing the client to take ownership of his/her issue and to determine how it should be resolved. Solution Focused Therapy supports this model and identify the strengths that a person already possess.
