My Approach to Helping

I believe each person holds the key to unlocking the mystery behind their stressors and I would love to begin paving the path to finding out those answers with you.

Many people might be reluctant to begin therapy as the thought of therapy already feels heavy. Some might feel too vulnerable to unload to a stranger all of their issues. I do believe therapy requires work and reflecting into your inner world; however, it goes at your own pace. I often find it easier and less burdensome to unload issues onto a stranger who is not directly in your personal life. Each session can be as heavy or as light as you would like. I believe gentle redirecting is necessary in therapy at times, but stemming from a person-centered approach, I do not pressure my clients into facing what they are not ready for.

I have always been a listener. I find that active listening is not as easy as it sounds and requires a personality who actually hears what you are saying. In my personal life, I too find that talking about my problems will help alleviate some of the stress despite some of the problems still remaining a constant. Long before becoming a therapist, I was already a "therapist"; amongst my peers. I believe my personality influences my approach to person-centered therapy as I am a gentle guider and active listener.

I like to set goals with clients in the beginning or after the first session and periodically review them as we progress in therapy. I believe goals can be changed or refined as we dig deeper into issues concerning an individual. Reviewing goals and seeing how they are achieved or changed indicate growth.
