I am a big proponent of trauma informed interventions that work quickly and produce lasting and measurable results.
I truly believe my job as a therapist, is to work myself out of a job. I personally value effective therapy interventions that work rapidly. I value clear end goals and measurable results. I believe, if a client is still talking to me about the same problem a few months later, I'm missing the mark.
I have made a commitment to myself, and my clients, that I will not let my purpose and passion be drowned out by documentation, billing and a caseload larger than I can handle. I believe in quality care. I believe everyone in recovery deserves a solid connection with a therapist who doesn't have to look up their name before the next session.
I value humor and a raw straight forward approach. I don't beat around the bush with my thoughts or ideas. I lay it all out on the table. Think of my office as a potluck, take what works, leave the rest.
