My Approach to Helping
Counseling Philosophy: During the therapeutic intervention the client will receive a supportive, safe, non-judgmental environment that will help build coping skills to help throughout the journey called “life”… with that being said it is very important to be to make the experience life changing yet structured to the needs of the client. I believe that therapy should be fun and interactive, my goal is first to always build rapport and gain the trust of the client, from there CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) will begin to develop the foundation of the therapeutic interventions. The objective of therapy is to give the client the tools to better function in society. Receiving therapy is scary, so why not make it person centered and tailored to the client needs!
Selfcare is very important so in my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, cooking and binge-watching Netflix.
