What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It is important to me that I am able to help my clients in ways that are congruent with how they accept support. I utilize a collaborative approach when working with my clients, and allow them to define what is most useful for their lives.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
My function as a therapist is to provide collaborative support for the client to work towards positive change.
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
Knowing that our compassion has the capacity to instill a lifelong memory and promote a sense of goodwill towards others in our clients.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
Clients can improve their mental health in a variety of ways; insight can sometimes leads to positive change, and when combined with new behavior can yield successful treatment outcomes.
