My Approach to Helping
I use my background in philosophy to help expand the way a client thinks and to take an active approach in observing their own thought processes in order to discern what is helpful and what isn't. I introduce my clients from the beginning to the concept of being present in their lives in order for them to "better feel" rather than exhausting themselves with trying to avoid discomfort. My therapeutic approach involves motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy, and is rounded off with a relationalpsychodynamic approach. The therapeutic relationship serves as a catalyst for change. Thus, my clients can experience change in the session and are able to reflect on this in order to make change in their relationships and behavior outside the office.
