Some of my favorite approaches include:
Cognitive-behavioral therapy, feminist, and client centered, all within a strengths based framework. As we get to know each other I tailor my approach to your personality and the issue at hand, and pull from relevant techniques and styles what would be most beneficial to you.
HOW I HELP
I believe that therapy works best when the relationship between counselor and client is authentic, trustworthy, and secure. The relationship we have serves as a microcosm in which you’re able to build trust, work through issues, and learn how to relate in healthy ways. It is also the secure base from which you can feel confident to take risks and confront challenges.
I believe that you have unrealized strengths and are capable of learning new skills to accomplish your goals, whether they are coping with change, breaking out of negative cycles, or gaining a deeper understanding of your emotions and how to manage them.
