My relationship with clients is laid-back, conversational, approachable; I view myself as my client's equal.
I am both client-centered and strengths-based in session. You won't find me using any toxic positivity, I will gladly validate your shitty day and sit with you in the suck. My no-bullshit approach means we tackle issues head-on, while my warm and conversational style creates a safe space for you to express yourself fully.
My style is influenced by attachment theory with some mindfulness dabbled in there. I am also trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model. I believe all humans are born with natural resilience. We'll explore how your past relationships and attachment patterns are influencing your present choices. This insight will empower you to make decisions that align with your true self and long-term happiness.
I use walk and talk therapy to marry body and mind. Walking while doing a therapy session offers a more laid back atmosphere (no awkward eye contact!) and less pressure to fill the space. I also like using walk and talk as a natural way to introduce mindfulness and being present in the moment. Not to mention the benefits to lowering blood pressure, regulating breathing, and lessening stress.
