My Approach to Helping
I tend to join well with my clients and build rapport first as I believe that this therapeutic relationship is the foundation of our worki. I see myself as a partner to my client’s journey as I provide support and therapeutic tools to address whatever stressors the client is having. I’m empathetic, non-judgmental, and culturally sensitive, as I’m bilingual in English and Lithuanian. I believe that through empowerment and increased self-awareness a client can achieve their goals in counseling with ease. My therapeutic styles include, but not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Couples and Family Systems, and Trauma-Focused.
About Me: I am a mother of three extraordinary daughters that keep me on my feet most of the time. I enjoy being outdoors and all the outdoor activities, staying active is what I enjoy the most. I love reading in the evenings when the household becomes quiet and shamelessly engage in some reality tv for entertainment.
