What is your style/approach to therapy?

My professional style is to use the late and great Carl Rogers' "person-centered therapy". This type of therapy diverges from the traditional model of the therapist as expert and moves instead toward a non-directive, empathic approach that empowers and motivates the client in the therapeutic process. My belief is that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential. It is my role to help them realize their potential and believe in themselves to pursue their potential to the fullest. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
