I would describe my counseling style as collaborative, warm, genuine, non-judgmental, and humanistic. I have been told that I am approachable, instantly make others feel comfortable, and have a good sense of humor. I firmly believe that respect, honesty, understanding, and compassion are imperative to the therapeutic relationship.
My approach is tailored to you as an individual and your specific needs and goals for seeking therapy. I take the time to get to know you and understand your goals for therapy. I also believe in utilizing your personal strengths in the therapy process. In general, I pull from my trainings in cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based, psychodynamic, dialectical-behavior therapy, and solution-focused therapies, among other evidence-based approaches.
