When it comes to working with clients, I firmly believe that establishing a genuine connection and understanding their unique life circumstances are crucial in providing effective assistance. That's why I prioritize creating a safe and secure environment where we can delve into their past, present, and future. My goal is to offer unwavering support through active listening, devoid of judgment while displaying compassion for their concerns, fears, and aspirations.
In my therapeutic approach, I blend talk therapy, fostering open dialogue for exploring various time frames, and structured therapy, which focuses on recognizing thought patterns and implementing strategies to modify or cope with them. This combined methodology ensures that our sessions are both relaxed and well-organized, enabling you to observe your progress, identify areas of personal growth, and achieve your desired outcomes.
I thrive in working with professionals or creatives, ranging from their mid-20s to 50s, who are grappling with issues such as anxiety, anger, and addiction. If you're seeking ongoing support, I can offer the guidance you need. Additionally, I am equipped to assist clients who are undergoing or have recently experienced significant life transitions or have been impacted by recent events.
