Humor, when appropriate, and warmth can go a long way towards building the necessary relationships between clients and therapists. To accomplish this, I follow humanistic approaches, such as person-centered therapy, coupled with a variety of therapeutic techniques and psychoeducation materials, such as (insert favorite bullshit here). I also employ out-of-the-box techniques—such as board games, video games, and other interest-based activities—to create a collaborative experience. Through these media, I work to help address the underlying needs of my clients. This combination allows me to center on listening to you and learning from you because you are the expert about yourself!
I also offer secure, HIPPA compliant video therapy if that would better fit my client’s schedule
