Individuals

Individual counseling has been compared to meeting with a best friend. Not just any friend, though. One that meets you where you are, you can be honest with your concerns, and vulnerable without the fear that you could be humiliated. That is my aim for each client to experience when they come to Thrive. Counseling provides a unique place where clients can feel safe (some times for the first time in a person’s life), talk without fear of being ashamed for what happened to them or what they are going through, and focus on ways they can improve, heal and grow. I understands that we are all going to have moments in our lives where we seem to get stuck or caught in the undertow of life, but that is where we also find our greatest drive to push through to the surface and breathe again.

I work in tandem with each client to develop a plan of action that is unique to each their goals. Through the use of Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Experiential techniques and Spiritual Directions work, I help clients discover what they need and where they want to go. Because depression, anxiety, hidden addictions and past trauma pains can keep a person stuck in the mire, a helping hand is often require along with some genuine encouragement. I have found that helping a person identify their strengths, unique personality and values are often some of the strongest first steps.

Clients have worked best with me using these techniques if they have found they are struggling with:

  • Vulnerability/Trust
  • Relationships
  • Hidden Addictions
  • Healing Past Trauma
