I would like clients to come away feeling heard and with a plan of action, whatever that looks like. I want to be positive and supportive about our defined and weekly / ongoing goals, but I'm also aware that things can be difficult, especially for those struggling with anxiety and depression. I feel my role is two-fold and has a delicate balance. As a therapist and coach, I want everyone to succeed with their goals. I'm also realistic about how difficult things can be and ideally, we would always work together. My philosophy is any client is the "captain of their ship", but I will also push towards progress.
I am a huge believer in Cognitive Behavioral and DBT and client-centered therapies. I believe so often we create stressors and anxieties, due to what we believe. I reinforce the concept that just because we believe it it is not necessarily true. I'm a proponent of reinforcing the positive, challenging one's inner critic and thinking patterns. I am also trauma-informed and EMDR-trained.
