My Approach to Helping
I approach counseling with a sense of curiosity and collaboration. I work to provide you with a place to feel welcomed and respected. Together we look at your core values, beliefs, significant relationships, and overall wellbeing. We consider how perceptions impact your behavior, communication and relationships. We then work to understand where those perceptions came from, and how subsequent interactions have affected beliefs about yourself and your current circumstances. We will discuss thoughts and actions as we work to dismantle maladaptive patterns.
We also look at resolving difficult emotions by understanding the purpose of those feelings, and where they come from. We will look at attachment styles, interpersonal communication, and thought processes, focusing on insight to affect change.
