I have prioritized client-centered and strength-based practice in my role as a social worker/psychotherapist. To me this means being able to provide guidance, supports and services according to my clients self-expressed needs and/or challenges. It also means that I operate under the belief and understanding that all of my clients intrinsically possess the strength and resilience to cope with whatever barriers they are facing. I am simply a guide or support along the way.
Though I am trained in many, I don’t tend to adhere to a specific therapeutic modality all the time. Instead, I draw on techniques from various approaches dependant on what is needed and what makes sense to my client. Therefore, my approach is eclectic and flexible. I take pride in being able to flow through emotions, experiences and techniques with my clients to truly meet them where they are at.
