CLINICAL APPROACH: Through our time together, clients learn to examine their thinking and/or beliefs and how those can affect their emotional climate. Garnering this insight often helps clients to better understand how our thoughts and emotions can affect how we act or, better, react towards ourselves or others around us. I have seen tremendous strength through understanding these inner workings.
The counseling relationship is one that is built on foundations of authenticity, compassion, safety, support and trust. Each client is as unique as a fingerprint just like their experience. People must know that they are and what they have endured is important. Therapy is a time for a person(s) to address these experience as opportunities of growth. The heart and mind are positioned to learn. That is the brilliance of the human spirit. Through relationship, honed, intentional, and earnest, we grow. Ceasing to just survive and learning to champion our lives. Ultimately, learning to thrive again.
