My Approach to Helping
I believe that, for the most part, we’re all doing our best. But I also believe that people are often capable of much more than we tend to give ourselves credit for because it can be hard to find the power and strength we have inside ourselves when we feel unseen and unheard. I think that’s why therapy can be such an important and effective intervention for a lot of people. I believe good therapy empowers clients. It gives people the opportunity to meet collaboratively with another person who can support them in finding their power and the choices that might be hidden from them. But I’m always going to pass the credit (and the responsibility) for growth back to the client. I have the clinical education and training, but, even if they don’t know how to articulate it when they first start therapy, the client is the one that knows who they are, where they’ve been, and what they need.
