The Building and Upkeep of Therapy
My 4 Pillars of Therapy
A solid therapeutic relationship - With a focus on fostering a therapeutic foundation built on safety, integrity, mutual trust, teamwork, and connection, a good fit eases the difficult work.
Relatable warmth, equality, and comfort - It's like spending time with a confidant. This means, I sit on a couch and kick off my shoes too. I provide a well stocked beverage and snack nook, keep several pillows and soft blankets within reach, and decorate the office with sentimental family pieces and old cozy home comforts.
Individual personalized care - While I'm always authentically me, the approaches and techniques I use are combined and tailored to you. We work together to create a plan that fits your unique situation and personality best. Your on-going feedback helps me make sure sessions are beneficial. I'm willing to adjust approaches, techniques, and style if needed within my professional scope and abilities.
Engaging sessions - You won't get bored here. I will counsel, teach, guide, listen to, and support you. You may laugh, cry, get angry, dig deep, be challenged, have days where we watch video clips, do in-session exercises, meditate, or even sit in silence so you can just breathe. It all depends on what you need. But no matter what, I will always engage you.
