My approach is person- centered meaning that I meet my clients where they are. I work with clients to explore the underlying nature of the problem and together help them figure out how to move forward. My work with clients might involve them learning how to express their feelings, manage difficult stress, trust their decision-making, help them find solutions to everyday problems.
I have additional training in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I sometimes integrate DBT to help my clients: manage difficult emotions, cope with stress, build resiliency to discomfort or pain in order to become the person they desire to be. I help clients decrease self-criticism and doubt, suspend judgments and shame, and increase skills to manage difficult emotions.
