My Approach to Helping

Dr. Boudin typically uses an integrated and client-centered approach, utilizing techniques from a variety of therapies, which are tailored to the individual client’s specific needs. She enjoys working from a strength-based perspective, setting goals in collaboration with those she works with, and often employing cognitive behavioral interventions in order to assist clients in overcoming life’s challenges.

Her integrated approach is most influenced by:

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: This approach emphasizes the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and teaches tools and strategies to interrupt negative thought patterns and behaviors that are consequently impacting how we feel. Client-Centered Therapy: This approach is based on the positive belief that the individual has the inherent capacity to move towards a state of positive mental health. The goal is for the client to achieve greater independence by becoming open to experience, learning to trust themselves, and developing an internal evaluation of themselves.

Strength-Based Therapy: This approach is a type of positive psychotherapy that focuses more on your internalindividual strengths, abilities, talents, and resources, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. This focus allows for a positive mindset that helps the client build on their best qualities, improve resilience, and change their worldview to one that is more positive.
