My Therapeutic Approach
When we initially begin to engage with each other, this is the time where we learn more about each other and start to lay the foundations of our therapeutic relationship and establish goals and support structure milestones. I see these milestones as little check-ins to keep us on track and make adjustments. During sessions with clients, I emphasize the importance that this is a time for you to be as free to express yourself as you want. Professional, ethical, and confidential standards always come first and it is safe to trust me with sensitive and personal information, no matter the topic.
Topics can range from stress/anxiety, dating, career goals, relationships/marriage, sex communication, HIV/AIDS concerns, and much more. If you find that you can’t be vulnerable anywhere else, know that it’s okay to be during our sessions. Our relationship will be one that is free from judgement, but challenges you when needed as you’re looking for answers and solutions to life’s obstacles. When was the last time you cleaned under the rug?
