My counseling style is client-centered, collaborative, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I believe helping you process your emotions in a safe nonjudgmental environment, will allow you to feel more in control and safer before we get into heaver topics.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, person centered. Each person is unique and so is your treatment. We will work together to formulate a treatment plan based on your needs. Some of the techniques I’ve used in the past are journaling, homework assignments, mindfulness practices, worksheets, and videos.
