What is My Therapeutic Approach?
My approach to working with clients involves a recipe of “Science, Art and Love”:
Science: I bring in effective, evidence-based therapies and modalities to each counselling session
Art: No two clients are alike… so I don’t work in the exact same way with each one. I artfully connect with each client in a personalized way and tap into my creativity to come up with unique ways to inspire positive change that is authentic for them
Love: Bringing out the best in my clients and helping them make positive things happen in their lives is me being “on-purpose”. I believe in my clients and I am in their corner with encouragement and support
