My Approach to Helping

As a clinical social worker, I devote my practice to the well-being of children, adolescents, and teens. I believe that building a trustworthy and positive relationship with clients is the foundation to helping them achieve their goals. I like to create a non-judgmental environment that is full of support, empathy, warmth. I often use a strengths-based approach when working with individuals, but tailor every counseling experience to the needs of each client. I believe that my bubbly and inviting personality allows those entering the therapeutic process to feel safe and comfortable. I think that building a trustworthy and positive relationship with clients is the foundation to helping them get to where they want to be!

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I believe that those who decide to seek out therapy are just the opposite of being weak or flawed! An individual who engages in therapy is extremely strong and knows that it's okay to ask for help or guidance. In order to counter this idea, I continually praise my clients for having the courage to participate in the therapeutic process. I want them to know how proud I am for putting their trust in me, and allowing me to be a supporter in their lives.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Building a relationship with my clients is one of the most important parts of the therapeutic process. I like to spend the first few sessions just getting to know him/her on a more personal level. I always put myself in the other person's shoes and imagine what he/she must be feeling. Beginning therapy can be intimidating and nerve-wracking, and I want to eliminate those feelings to make my clients feel as comfortable as possible. Feeling comfortable in therapy allows the clients to express emotions and share their story with ease.
