Counseling Philosophy and Treatment Approach
Counseling, in my eyes, is a process where we confront our fears in an attempt to create a path to our ideal selves and future. Through a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), and an eclectic mindset, I hope to work with you and support and assist in your growth.
