In collaboration with the patient, we uncover or rediscover the patient’s own abilities. I view my patients as resourceful and resilient in the face of adversity, and empower them to be active participants in the healing process. My approach to therapy is holistic, from a Strengths-Based, Client-Centered, Mindful perspective. I acknowledge that all people have strengths – often untapped or unrecognized.
Strengths-Based, Person-Centered Therapy
The therapist and client collaborate together to bring self-awareness to the client, both believing that the client can and will find self-direction.
Replacing unwanted patterns of behavior with learned new behaviors. This may include assertion, cognitive restructuring, modeling, relaxation methods and coaching.
The therapist helps the client evaluate their behaviors and feelings, challenging them to become more effective at meeting their needs.
The aim of mindfulness therapy is to help you learn to be aware of your thoughts and bodily sensations and in so doing be able to better cope with day to day emotions and problems.
The spiritual component incorporated to facilitate physical, mental and emotional healing.
