I believe that although many clients have similarities, each client is different and deserves individualized intervention strategies. I can assist each client in developing their specific box of tools to address their personal issues and to meet their counseling goals. I believe that the best view of therapy is a holistic view. A hammer is an effective tool until a wrench is needed. A toolbox with many diverse tools has the best chance at repairing a multitude of concerns.
In the first session I inform you, as well as each client, that even though I have my licensure, my degrees, my education and my experience; this is my first time meeting you. You know more about your life than I do, which makes you an expert in the room. What I have to offer is simply that. Offerings. I will offer evidenced based strategies as well as experimental strategies that are tied to Art & Science. I do not insist. I do not demand. I make offerings and we work together to pinpoint what strategies will work best for you. All work that is done in session is done as a team.
