Therapy is a support, and we all have other various supports in our lives. At times we face challenges where we want help, whether it’s rock climbing, building a home, raising children, or thinking about life changing decisions. We’ve perhaps watched someone build a house by themselves on YouTube, but even when they do it by themselves, they use all kinds of buttresses and structures to support things while they get the home to the point where it holds itself together without those supports. Therapists work themselves out of a job because we want to see people grow and succeed, gaining the tools and confidence to thrive in the challenges of life.
In therapy, I draw from approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. Like any therapist, we’re always integrating new information and technique.
You’ll find me supportive, creative, calming, client-led, non-directive, and most of all -safe, so you feel comfortable seeking answers and finding solutions to things not regularly spoken about.
