I don’t believe that any one modality of therapy works best for everybody. I believe in getting to know my client, understanding what works and does not work for them, and keeping an open line of communication with what is and isn’t helping. That is how I believe the best treatment and treatment planning occurs: when both parties are able to honestly express their thoughts on the treatment process and are willing to explore different avenues in order to bring about the most healing. I believe in person-centered care. I believe in helping a client feel comfortable, welcome, and safe when they are in therapy, and I strive to be a positive support for them.
Without my personal life’s experiences with pain, anxiety, depression, and a multitude of other struggles, I know I would not be the therapist that I am today. I believe that I have a large amount of empathy for individuals who go through these types of struggles, and I feel that I can help them not only from a professional level, but also from a human-being to another human-being level. The human experience is not always an easy one to go through. It is my pleasure and privilege to help individuals walk through their struggles and to let them know that they are not alone. By providing them with support, empathy, techniques for success and a safe place to come each week, I believe that I can be a part of the healing in a clients life and that is one of the greatest blessings that I could ever think of participating in.
