Approach to counseling
“Real life experience deeply informs any therapists work. I know the joys and challenges of marriage, parenting and career.”
“I know how it feels to struggle, how hard relationships can be and that we often put ourselves last on the list of priorities. It is difficult for me sometimes to do the next right thing and to know when to assert myself and when to let things go.”
J.R. uses a variety of approaches and techniques in his work, from delving into deep seated past experiences, to simple coping skills and advanced techniques, often shifting in a session as needs change.
“I see myself part therapist, part life coach and part sponsor.”
