Person-Centered theory is all about a way of being towards you. It is grounded in the desire to show respect and care for you as a person. Carl Rogers (founder of Person-Centered theory) coined an idea known as Unconditional Positive Regard. The goal of my actions as your counselor is to show a deep value, care, and respect, for you. I want to create a space that says, “I honor you and hold no judgment for any piece of you.” A space where you can safely become the best version of yourself.
Narrative Theory is a hope-based approach to counseling that actively works to empower you. The goal is for you to take an active role in how you live your life and understand the challenges you face. This is accomplished by exploring you and your experiences to find and leverage strengths that you possess that are either hidden, forgotten, or haven't been discovered yet. Through Narrative theory, you take an active part in becoming the best version of yourself.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has quickly become one of the most popular approaches to working with couples. It is widely recognized as one of the most effective forms of couples therapy. The focus is on understanding how our emotions, interactions, and attachments come together to form healthy and unhealthy patterns in our relationship. EFT aims to encourage the growth of new healthy patterns and move away from unhealthy patterns.
The way you feel about yourself matters, and in a world that constantly showcases perfection, it is all too easy to want to hide who you really are. Developing a sense of who you are and learning how to honor that person starts with realizing that you are valuable and worthy of honor and respect. Through narrative theory, we can work together to explore who you are and empower you to be yourself more confidently.
