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.
