My Approach to Helping
When treating clients, I utilize multiple forms of therapy including person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. Each client is unique and each approach should be tailored to what the client needs and where they are in their therapeutic journey. I understand that seeking therapy can be a scary and uncomfortable process so, I believe that creating a safe environment and forming a solid and strong rapport is essential. Once rapport is established, the client can begin to explore different issues and challenges at their own pace.
