What is your style/approach to therapy?

I approach therapy session with a person-centered lens, starting with the client's present experience and validating the client's truths. I use a trauma-informed approach to help clients overcome the burden of intergenerational trauma and painful pasts. I am not opposed to assigning homework, practicing with role plays, and expecting client participation and effort. I am honest and direct with my feedback while still remaining compassionate and gracious.
