Provided services are a blend of part supportive and part therapeutic. Common therapeutic treatment methods and tools I use include: CBT, narrative reframing, solution focused techniques, expressive arts, and body-based sensory and movement focus. Supportive interventions I use include wraparound services that offer connection to communities, professions, and organizations that focus on financial, vocational, and other benefit services. The intent for all methods is to facilitate clients receiving a healing through living life more consciously and authentically. Therapeutic use of self through presence, empathetic attunement, and active listening are also a part of the engagement.
As a client you can expect my being present to your challenges. I will work with you in a collaborative manner and companion you as best I am able. You are not alone in your struggles. You can expect a welcoming, safe space to express your thoughts and feelings. I offer practical strategies for healing and to help you more effectively manage your well-being. Optional homework is regularly provided and designed to reinforce insights uncovered, integrate concepts, and shift perspective and perceptions (beliefs). You can expect to be respected and validated for who you are. We will work at your pace. Together, we will improve the quality of your life.
