One of the most important predictors of therapeutic success is the connection you have with your therapist. These following qualities help me establish strong connections with my clients:
I am an insightful, energetic, humorous and caring therapist. Many of my clients have let me know that I have been the first therapist that they felt comfortable fully opening up to.
It is common to feel stuck or lacking in hope when you first meet with a therapist. By valuing my clients for their unique abilities and their capacity to work toward improvement in their lives I help make our work together a context in which you can feel unstuck and hopeful.
My services are highly collaborative. I will work with you to establish specific, achievable goals for counselling, and check in with you regularly through our work together to assess the progress we are making.
I have worked with children, adolescents, young adults and caregivers in various roles for the past decade. I am extremely well informed about common issues that young people and families deal with in their lives and on strategies that can help you in working through these issues.
