My Approach to Helping
"We are allowed to make mistakes and have emotions, that is what makes us human. If we didn't make mistakes or feel, then we would be just robots." Julie McLeary
If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?
Therapy is not for the weak and broken, it is for the strong... those who are desiring change and want to find ways to improve their life. Also, therapy is not a forever thing! We are not meant to stay in therapy forever. Therapy is a way to gain skills and become more self-aware. Additionally, even if one has had therapy in the past and is considering starting up with therapy again, it's not because the first round of therapy failed. It is because you have grown and now you may need to learn some more skills because you are ready to work on another aspect of your life.
My approach to therapy is very individualized to the person that I am working with. I like to learn what works and does not work for you. Each of us has different learning styles and personalities, so I do not have a set regiment for therapy. I like to say that I do have a bunch of tools that can help but it always depends on what tools you are needing at the time.
