I believe success in therapy is measured in many ways. Firstly, showing up and being consistent with sessions will keep you motivated for treatment. It is important to have a clear idea from the beginning of therapy of what your goals are in treatment. It is helpful to reflect back on therapy goals and check in to see the progress. Sometimes, it is difficult to be self-reflective and see your own progress so I think it is important for your therapist to provide recognition and celebrate progress and accomplishments with you as you progress through treatment. Also, success happens when you are open and ready for change and new a perspective.
Rather than having one therapeutic approach for individuals coming into therapy, I am flexible in their needs and may work from a variety of therapeutic approaches and apply different modalities to meet their needs. I value the importance of trauma informed approaches to provide an emotionally safe environment for individuals seeking treatment. I work hard to create a collaborative, constructive, challenging environment that is also consistent with compassion, acceptance, and warmth.
Sometimes, my sense of humor may come out in session. Although therapy can be challenging and involve some heavy topics I believe it is important to be able to laugh at times when appropriate. The power of laughter is amazing!
