Therapy Approach

Research shows that the single most important factor in predicting a positive outcome for individuals in therapy is a strong therapeutic relationship between client and practitioner. My approach to therapy is client centered and holistic. I am a massage therapist by trade and believe in the synergy of mind, body, and spirit for optimal wellness. My Interactions with my clients are guided by the ethical principle of self-efficacy, you are the expert on you! I believe each one of us possess the capacity to thrive, and we are all inherently worthy of happiness. I empower my clients to confront and remove barriers to their happiness and uncover long-standing patterns and negative beliefs that prevent them from living the life they want. I utilize a variety of client centered, evidenced based modalities, guided by my intuition to tailor a unique approach to treatment. I frequently use CBT, DBT, Motivational interviewing, skills building, solution focused therapy, and psychodrama to support clients in reaching their goals.  Choosing to begin therapy is a big step, you must have a therapist you can trust and connect with. I strive to provide an empathetic, safe, judgment free space for my clients to process their thoughts and feelings and accomplish their therapeutic goals.
