Therapy is a collaboration between the therapist and the client. In order to help the client, I use the client’s strengths to meet them where they are, to help them achieve their goals and to reach their full potential. When working with a client of any age, I work to create a warm, nonjudgmental safe space. I strive to help clients to identify and understand their levels of stress, what is specifically draining their energy, and work with the client to identify and practice positive coping skills. During sessions, talk, play, music, and other creative modalities are used to help the client achieve their goals.
