My theoretical orientation is a mixture of Narrative and Collaborative theory. My orientation is strengths based in approach, which recognizes an individual’s unique, subjective reality as they are constructed through our interaction with socio-cultural beliefs and values. I honor clients as experts of their own lives and as a therapist, I serve as consultant to talk about client concerns with a non-judgmental, non-value assertion approach. Conversations are collaborative toward creating change through a conversational process that serves to emphasis client strengths and resources and enhance personal agency. In fostering self-agency, I tend to be present-centered, solution focused, and to work with clients in fewer sessions.
