I see my role as one of supporting my clients in their individual journey of growth.
Because of this, I tailor my approach to each individual’s needs. In our initial meeting, I ask a few questions about what kind of support you are looking for, and I will propose some options for what therapy could look like if we worked together. I value collaborating with my clients to ensure we are adjusting our work in such a way that it best meets your needs.
Most importantly, I strive to create a safe space to do this work. Some of the elements I utilize to foster safety include:
Holding an open-minded, nonjudgmental approach
Tailoring therapy to your individual needs
Creating space for collaboration and feedback
Striving for your best interest over my own, including referring you to a different therapist if we might not be the best fit to work together.
And, as is required of all therapists, holding your privacy sacred. I don’t ever reveal information about my clients outside of the office and take all reasonable measures to protect your privacy whenever information is transferred digitally (e.g., email, scheduling, and credit card processing).
