I utilize a Client-Centered approach with all of my client’s, which helps me to focus on the client’s needs than my own objectives. More recently, I have been using a Strengths-Based model, which maximizes the client’s strengths and resources, building resiliency and determination. I do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to therapy, so each client’s emotional and behavioral needs can individually be met. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and therapist alike. I have found that while having technical expertise is good, having trust between client and therapist is more important because I have to "earn the right" for my clients to implement techniques I suggest. Without trust, there is no foundation or progress in therapy.
