My Approach to Helping

My clients and I work together in our sessions to identify the tools and skills needed to conquer an issue. Our sessions approach client issues by first recognizing and appreciating the client’s skills initially used; later, the client and I explore, customize, and implement therapeutic techniques that increase communication skills, advocacy, and self-esteem. Together the client and I build self-awareness, decrease symptom severity, and increase their connections in the client’s community. I typically start with utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies to identify a client’s strengths and areas for improvement; we will use a growth mindset and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) concepts to increase a client’s psychological flexibility so that anything seems possible. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is often intertwined in our sessions to learn potent communication skills to increase relationship building outside the sessions.
