The process of therapy is not simple or one-sided. I believe in the importance of developing a trusting, and non-judgmental relationship in therapy to better understand and pursue the established goals. I also believe that a client-centered approach is crucial for self-determination during the therapeutic process. Everyone has the ability to view, and use their own strengths to manage the stressors of life, but sometimes seeking an alternate perspective through the development of a therapeutic relationship can bring someone to feel more empowered while managing life experiences. I use evidence based practices such as CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused therapy to guide clients through their life stressors in a way that promotes self-care, and personal awareness. I also incorporate Mindfulness practices to help individuals remain grounded, and work towards minimizing stress and worry in their daily lives.
I have experience working with individuals coping with a range of difficulties including: anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, difficulties with anger management, and low self-esteem. Additionally, my experience with clinical case management helps to provide insight and support to individuals with problem-solving and determining the best approach for progressing towards their goals.
