Beneath your smile is sadness, frustration, worry, or self doubt about your circumstances, relationships or yourself. Your mind is cluttered and your feelings are out of sorts. Perhaps you've tried your best to make things better yet nothing seems to work. Are you tired of doing the same thing and expecting different results?
Hello! My name is Ha! My passion to help individuals, couples, and families heal. Allow me to walk along beside you and offer support through this time in your life. When we work together, you'll learn how to identify the root cause of your feelings as well as acquire skills to successfully navigate the stressors of life and your relationships.
I view therapy as a collaborative process of equals. My role as a counselor is to help you build on your individual strengths and maximize your potential for personal growth and fulfillment. My goal is:to provide a safe environment where you and your loved one can feel comfortable to explore the past, gain personal insight and make positive changes. I will also help you relieve, reduce, and resolve debilitating symptoms of stress and trauma.
My holistic approach to counseling incorporates mind, body, and spirit. I may refer you to an alternative therapy such as a nutritional counselor to address nutritional deficiencies or food sensitivities which may affect your mind and body.
I believe that faith and spirituality is a crucial element in the therapeutic process. Regardless of your religious beliefs or background, be assured that I will respect and honor your spirituality.
Beyond traditional talk therapy, I utilize the creative arts (journaling, art, music, movement) to help you explore and express your feelings. I also utilize guided imagery, mindfulness, and meditativeness approaches to alleviate stress and anxiety.
I do not believe "one size fits all" in counseling; therefore, I will tailor a variety of counseling modalities for your unique, individual needs. I value your input and encourage you to discuss any concerns you have throughout our work together.
