My professional focus is working with people helping them solve their problems. I believe it’s important to add to the list of an individual’s coping skills so that he/she can make better choices when in stressful situations instead of going on auto-pilot and doing what he/she normally does. My goal is not to take away coping skills someone has already developed, even the poor ones, but to add to the choices he/she has so he/she has a more extensive selection to choose from.
As one example, my services benefit clients dealing with depression or anxiety by helping them figure out ways to overcome their condition and providing a variety of tools to use in the future if the problem returns.
