How does my personality influence my approach to therapy?
I am fairly introverted but independent so I prefer to listen and assimilate information to be able to provide validation and support clients in their own recovery journeys. I enjoy promoting independence in clients through positive affirmations, motivational interviewing and cognitive therapy approaches to bring about positive lifestyle changes.
What I like to do for fun:
I enjoy gardening, landscaping, renovation projects, and mostly anything outdoors!
