There is something incredibly special about the therapeutic relationship. It's a rare thing in our busy lives to have dedicated time with another who listens deeply to our story, offers emotional support, and provides a new perspective as well as honest feedback. In fact, a warm and caring therapeutic relationship is the biggest determining factor in client success, regardless of therapeutic style.
With that in mind, I approach psychotherapy with an eye to the therapist-client relationship. Together we cultivate genuine and warm connection in the counseling space. Through this bond, clients make strides toward self-empowerment, self-acceptance, and positive upward movement to reach their unique individual goals. My style aligns closest with an integration of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy, and internal family systems theories.
