At the heart of any therapeutic relationship lies the alliance formed between the therapist and the client, which serves as the foundation for meaningful change. My approach to therapy is rooted in collaboration, empowerment, and self-determination. In therapy, I play the role of a supportive guide, empowering individuals to tap into their intrinsic motivation and abilities. Confronting life’s challenges is never easy, and often, we make things more difficult for ourselves when we attempt to tackle them alone. Therapy can help us uncover the missing pieces that have hindered our ability to successfully adapt to circumstances. It would be an honor to be a part of your journey.
In my work with children and teens, I have found it most effective to truly “meet the client where they are at.” Many children and teens want to feel understood and need to establish trust before they are ready to delve into making changes. I had the distinct privilege of being trained by the founder of Motivational Interviewing, William R. Miller, and I utilize my training and experience to evoke patients’ intrinsic motivation for change. My approach with children and teens involves maintaining a state of flow throughout the session, where I pay close attention to subtle details and patient communication. This allows me to respond effectively and efficiently during the session, creating more opportunities for meaningful change to occur.
