The most important element in therapy is creating a safe and empowering relationship.
There are many barriers to seeking support and I believe it is my job to break those down. I encourage prospective clients to ask questions and develop trust in whatever way feels right to them.
My education in social work has taught me to look at each individual as part of a larger picture, and to work with each individual from a place of empowerment and strength.
I practice from an emotionally focused orientation, focusing on strengths and empowerment. I also have training in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution oriented therapy and mindfulness. I integrate a variety of tools to meet the needs and specific qualities of each client.
