My Approach to Helping
Most of the individuals drawn to me are people who find themselves in the midst of a transition in their life. Many are college students, transplants, frequent travelers and interstate commuters who want a consistent presence to check in at a time when change is not only inevitable but overwhelming.
My approach in the room is integrative I do not believe everyone responds to therapy in the same manner. Growing up in a culture where traditional talk therapy is perceived as a unnatural I know what is perceived as evidence based in one culture does not translate to all cultures. Ultimately, my goal during my 85 minute intake is to gain a greater understanding of the internal and external factors that have shaped a Clients life and the manner in which my Client perceived the world around them. This knowledge will help me determine which approach can be most beneficial in helping my client achieve their goal.
I honor and have great respect for the manner in which a person chooses to identify themselves in terms of gender, sexual orientation, family culture, racially, etc. I acknowledge and respect the intersectionality of the various ways my client chooses to identify themselves.
