The emotional support, mind and body connection, communication, and freedom an individual feels, and expresses, are important aspects to how meaning and purpose are experienced in life. Using an integrative mindful, trauma informed, person centered, Adlerian, REBT, CBT, and MI approach I collaborate with clients to deepen their strengths, and discover ways of emotionally connecting with themselves, others and the world. Through these non-judgmental approaches clients are encouraged to explore and create meaning socially, culturally, individually, and relationally.
Change is overwhelming and many often experience pain. Creating safety and support throughout the counseling process as clients learn about themselves and develop meaning, purpose, and emotional awareness is the underlying purpose in my therapeutic approach. Life is hard. Connecting meaning, purpose, and emotions are important pieces in developing skills and coping with life’s ups and downs.
