MY APPROACH

My approach to therapy is informed by the following guiding principles:

Collaborative Care

  • therapy is accepting of client readiness for change

  • choice and autonomy over therapy process

  • client cared for with unconditional positive regard

  • non-judgement space

Inclusive Space

  • all genders, sexual orientations, and cultural backgrounds are welcome

  • therapy isĀ Health At Every Size (HAES) aligned

  • therapy is weight inclusive and respects body diversity

Building Relationship

  • building a safe, supportive, and authentic relationship will be foundation of therapy

  • client will feel seen, heard, and understood

  • therapy is client-centered and strengths-based

Evidence-informed

  • treatment planning is informed by evidence

  • therapy rooted in current best practice guidelines

  • therapy is adapted to meet clients needs, preferences, and life circumstances
