I try to show up authentically each session to show that I am a person just like you. I don’t pretend to be an expert, because YOU are the expert on your life. My therapeutic environment is based on equality between me and my clients. You should feel respected and heard as an individual and not as “Patient X with X diagnosis.” I prioritize earning my clients' trust - which is a privilege, not a right - because therapy is personal, and I want to support you where you are. I use a lot of humor and empathy in sessions to make the process more comfortable, because sometimes therapy is awkward. And that’s ok! Change can only happen when we’re uncomfortable enough to take action, and we will navigate that process together.
