I'm fully empathic with the emotional suffering that comes with being human. I always approach whatever my client comes in with from the perspective that they are right to be having the emotional experience they're having; i.e., there are reasons for it. No judgment. No blame. As I engage in a therapeutic alliance with them, we explore together for understandings and meanings to learn those reasons, which no one can do alone. Through the alliance with me as a trusted professional, my client gains early symptom relief and is fostered in higher functioning through feeling better.
