I believe that everyone can benefit from counseling. Whether a person is in crisis, suffering from long-term struggles, or simply wants to learn more about themselves, something can be gained from an genuine, honest, and nonjudgmental counseling relationship.
I approach therapy from the Cognitive Behavioral perspective that by identifying and changing patterns of thought and behavior, a person can begin to change the way they feel. When integrating CBT with other approaches designed specifically for that client, as well as a genuine counseling relationship, the client and I can begin to see a more full picture of the issues that brought the person in, explore arising issues, and begin the process of change.
I lived in Seoul and provided counseling for AHS clients from 2010-2012. I currently reside in Pittsburgh, PA.
Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.
