We have relationships with not just people, but with places, possessions, ideas, - and ourselves. How are you getting along with yourself?

While my primary orientation is relational in nature, I believe that in order to move forward in therapy there are times when we need structured activities and a framework by which we can show tangible progress towards a goal. This is where CBT comes in. By providing us specific interventions that connect our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we can better our situations and mental health.
Motivational Interviewing is a technique used to put you in charge of your own therapy. I'm here to guide you, certainly, but the change needs to come from within you. I will ask questions and find ways to motivate you to make changes at a pace that you are comfortable with.
Primarily, I align with Relational-Cultural Therapy, which prioritizes relationships in life and in treatment. We are mutually working together to help you better interact with everyone - and everything - in your life. You have a relationship with your partner, your family, but also with your work, your money, and yourself. I want to explore that with you.
