For someone who is reluctant to begin therapy, I would like to share that I admire your bravery in even considering a pathway to improve your well being. Beginning therapy is a very vulnerable feeling for most, but also is one of the most courageous acts of self love one can exhibit. When first meeting a client I prioritize actively listening to them in order to gain an adequate understanding of their past experiences, present issues and future goals while building an initial foundation of trust.
Consistent assessments of your objectives and goals are done to ensure actions are being followed and substantial progress is being made by completing treatment plans.
I am able to offer a professional, unbiased opinion of your encounters, experiences and situations in general. I will be a safe space to discuss anything and everything without the fear of judgement or relationship repercussions.
The main philosophies and values that inform my work include my utmost commitment to allow clients to reach their highest quality of life and relationships in the most accessible and obtainable ways possible.
To me, therapy is the pathway to internal understanding of thoughts and emotions which leads to external improvements in behavior and actions. My goal is for each client to achieve the best quality of life possible by means of evidence based practices and support. I hope every client takes away enlightenment of their own resilience and self worth after working with me.
