A strong belief that a trusting, collaborative relationship between a client and his or her therapist is fundamental to treatment goal success. Central in our work is the assumption that you, the client, are the expert on your life. We can help you first identify the patterns and barriers that are inhibiting you from living the life you would like to live. Collaboratively, we can assist you in creating the kinds of lasting, healthier change you desire in your life and relationships.
Our style of approach in therapy is to help you understand your life issue, take a look at your choices to address it, and see improvement in life quality by taking a examined path that works to a more empowered & healthier you.
The structure to our initial sessions will try to help you feel comfortable with talking to us. Developing a trusting rapport is critical in the therapy in that it allows the disclosure of personal information which we’ll safely discuss. While moving towards a trusting relationship, we will discuss the problems that you’re experiencing with the intent to identifying conscious and subconscious thought and behaviors that work and do not work for you. We hold to the belief that we assess not just the problems, but also the strengths that have helped you cope during difficult periods in your life. We do take a look at the past circumstances contributing to current problems, but we will focus on your present issues and concerns. Through our collaborative journey, we will provide approaches to address the problems you are experiencing.
