Critical to developing a therapeutic relationship is trust and unconditional positive regard. Trust is based on consistency over time. Unconditional positive regard is conveyed by establishing trust in a non-judgemental relationship. By establishing trust and providing non-judgemental feedback, a therapist encourages a safe environment necessary for developing opportunities to explore sensitive aspects of personal history and challenges. I strive to establish trust, meeting the client where they are in life, and helping them embrace the inevitable lesson that life involves change. Assisting the client to adapt at a pace and in ways that help them meet personal goals remains the focus.
My philosophy of life is to never give up, face the challenges as they emerge, learn to grieve loss and let go when appropriate. Trauma, loss, and stress impact everyone differently, and so it is my responsibility to help reframe and manage clients' cognitions and emotions associated with life's challenges. Although each individual's experience is unique, we all encounter similar thoughts and emotions associated with stress, trauma and loss. Helping others understand there is a predictable course of recovery from most negative life experience, illuminating the pathway, and facilitating clients' in moving toward the recovery process becomes my objective.
Establishing a treatment plan concludes an initial assessment. This process typically takes one or two sessions. Specific treatment goals are driven by the client's individual circumstances and needs. Treatment goals must be realistic, operationalized, and time limited. Goals are re-evaluated periodically as a means of measuring progress. Specific strategies are employed to help achieve those goals, and vary depending on the client.
