Therapy is an investment in yourself. As a counselor, I take a person-centered approach. The person-centered approach works on three principles: 1. Unconditional Positive Regard (creating an empathic and non-judgmental environment), 2. Empathic Understanding (complete understanding and acceptance of your thoughts and feelings), and 3. Congruence (presenting my true self to you in the session by being honest and transparent).
Oftentimes, people in our life do not give us the opportunity to voice our feelings fully. In our sessions, I believe you will benefit from being the one doing the majority of the talking. I want to understand what you have been experiencing. It will be a chance for self-discovery, self-acceptance, and healing old wounds.
