In Office Counseling Approach

I offer traditional in office counseling sessions in addition to EAP for clients who prefer this option. ​My therapeutic work in this setting is often done through a systemic lens allowing me to consider how the problem affects and is affected by the systems and relationships around us.​ I tend to use an integrative approach to counseling which may include mindfulness-based interventions and somatic (body/feeling/sensation) approaches such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches (META).  I also often use or incorporate experiential therapy, emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT/CPT), and attachment based interventions. You can learn more about these approaches by visiting the associated links or by contacting me for more information. I am always happy to explain the benefits and contrasts of different counseling approaches.

 

I have training and experience in many different approaches to counseling and my primary goal is to tailor my approach to the needs of my client.​​​​ My counseling style can be spontaneous and intuitive as I view the above mentioned approaches as tools in my toolbox from which I can pull to customize your healing experience to your needs .  All approaches that I draw from are evidence based and my work is client centered, meaning that above all, I value you as the primary source of wisdom for guiding our process to best meet your needs. I believe that individuals already innately hold within them the ability to heal and to discover their own solutions however they often need guidance in that process. I am always honored to join my clients in the journey of walking that sometimes seemingly uncertain path through healing.
