Becky’s Approach to Therapy
Having lived in many environments including Canada and Hawai’i, I have come to appreciate the importance of community, support, and interconnectivity. I believe we all have a desire to feel secure, supported, and achieve a sense of belonging in the world we live in. I am deeply committed to a few simple, yet powerful values in my clinical work. First, I pride myself in inspiring client’s to discover their own self-worth as we all deserve stability and joy. Secondly, it is an honor to empower others in motivating intrinsic and meaningful change for themselves. Last, I partner with clients to genuinely instill a strong sense of optimism and hope throughout the counseling
I strive to understand each client’s unique concerns, fears, and hopes for treatment. Taking a systems approach, I am dedicated to treating the client in a holistic way tailored to meet their specific needs. Having specialized training in trauma and attachment work, I utilize a mindful approach and evidenced-based practices in order to increase bonds and improve meaningful relationships. I work creatively with each client to reduce challenging symptoms such as anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, self-destructive behaviors, parenting, and issues of gender/sexuality identities. The client’s therapeutic goals are developed through genuine partnership to ensure success. I am passionate about creating transformative strategies for clients of all ages and all walks of life in authentic and accepting ways.
