I believe that the problems you face are separate from who you are. As David Epston & Michael White have said - “the problem is the problem, the person is not the problem.” I believe that you have the power to create your own meaning for your experiences, and that problems like stress, anxiety, perfectionism, codependency, etc. show up when you’ve outgrown the story you’re telling yourself of your experiences. I believe that you are capable of change and growth, which means you can learn new ways to view your past experiences so that they better fit your life in the present.
I also believe that you are the expert of your life! You get to decide what works and doesn’t work for you, and I will not judge or insert a predetermined agenda. I don’t believe that therapy, or life in general, is a one-size-fits-all experience. I very much believe in meeting you where you’re at and helping you learn more about yourself so that you can determine what you want your life to look like.
