I situate myself in a Person-Centred framework developed by psychologist Carl Rogers, and take an eclectic approach towards the interventions I use. I genuinely believe all human beings are inherently good-natured, and we have the unique and instinctual ability to strive towards growth, completeness, and fulfillment in our lives. When this process is challenged by loved ones, role models, and society, we begin to drift away from who we truly are. Ultimately, this drift leads to a conflict between our true-self and the self others want us to be, and these two competing selves may lead to symptoms of psychological distress and imbalance.
In the therapy room I am completely committed to the therapeutic relationship between myself and my clients. I believe a warm, trusting, supportive, and unconditionally positive connection between myself and my clients forms the foundation for therapeutic change. From this foundation, I draws upon a handful of evidence-based therapies that best fit the holistic wellbeing of my clients and the goals they are working on with me.
