Therapy needs to be a safe place to process thoughts and emotions. Typically, I begin my work with clients through supportive processing. The next phase of therapy includes challenging current assumptions or emotional positions and skill building. I work to create an environment of feedback and checking in with my clients to make sure therapy is focused on working towards the desired results. I consider it to be an honor to be a part of this process and I believe typically people can gain results without prolonged therapy. In working with my clients, I draw from various therapy styles, to find the best fit, tailored for each client. I have been influenced by Rogerian, Gestalt, DBT, Gottman and Internal family systems. Christian philosophy has strongly impacted me personally and professionally. I invite my clients to draw from that philosophy if they find it appropriate.
