The Benefit of Seeing a Social Worker in Private Practice

Where most therapists are taught to look at therapy through normal and abnormal psychology, a social worker is taught to look at what the client wants and how to find solutions to improve the client's life from where it is today, with less concern for diagnosis and labels.

The Cognitive Theory

It is believed that 80-90 percent of our thoughts are useless, erroneous and even harmful. Our negative thoughts precede negative feelings. Therefore positive thoughts create positive feelings. 


YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE A LIFE FILLED WITH PEACE, LOVE AND JOY...

Therapeutic Approach


Always starting where the client is.
