Clients start attending therapy when they want to make a change in their lives. They might have a new issue; this might be an issue they have been dealing with for years. What they need is someone who can actively listen and help them reflect on their choices and their desires. Ultimately, they want to gain a greater understanding behind their actions and decisions, which leads to change.
I use a relational approach and look to meet the client where they are in their journey. I will gently probe to gain a greater insight into the client's issues and goals. I actively listen and reflect a client's words back to them to help them see patterns and gain more self-awareness.
I prioritize creating a warm and non-judgmental environment for clients. I know that the trust and relationship built between client and provider is one of the most significant factors in helping a client reach their goals.

I have used a psychodynamic approach to unpack the thought processes behind behaviors to promote healthy coping skills and long-lasting change. Using this approach, I have supported clients in reaching their goals of reducing symptoms and building new coping mechanisms to rely on. Using session time to practice these skills will also help clients become comfortable with using them.
