“Psychotherapy is the art of finding the angel of hope in the midst of terror, despair and madness.” This quote is the basis of how I practice. I believe that as a therapist, it is my job and duty to help the client see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hope contains the belief that by seeking some sort of help, assistance, or outside influence, change is possible. While practicing, I use an integrated treatment model that includes Reality Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
