My Approach to Helping
I align with the Adlerian approach within therapy, forming a therapeutic relationship based on mutual respect that rests on a collaborative arrangement between the client and counselor. My treatment approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy however every individual is unique, and an integrative approach based on the individual\'s needs works best when developing a collaborative plan for progress during preparation. I also have specialized training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) by Compassion Works which I incorporate into sessions frequently when appropriate. EMDR is an approach which is used to re-work the way ‘stuck’ memories are stored by the brain. I pair this technique with skills and resource building to help my clients move past their barriers to change and live a whole-hearted life.
