As a therapist, I believe in the importance in providing a safe and nurturing environment that serves as a container for my clients and their emotions. i believe in the importance of meeting a client where they are and in turn tailoring my work as a therapist to fit the unique needs of my clients. I most frequently apply Client-Centered and Synergetic theories to my work with clients to facilitate self-understanding. Client-centered therapy builds on the notion that, given the right conditions, all people are capable of being loving, creative, and knowledgeable. The therapeutic aim is to construct an environment, which allows a person to grow, consisting of unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence as well as stressing the here and now. Along with working with individuals, I am also passionate about helping parents/caregivers strengthen their relationships with children through the use of positive discipline training.
