Approach to Therapy: My therapeutic orientation is an integration of person-centered concepts (such as therapist congruence (genuineness), empathy, and unconditional positive regard) and CBT. By integrating these two orientations I seek to foster a safe environment that allows clients to explore their problems as well as challenge their own understanding of their situation/problems.

Approach to Supervision: My supervision framework is loosely based on my therapeutic orientation. I take an equalitarian stance, applying client centered concepts and a CBT framework to promote an environment where supervisees will feel comfortable bringing in both successes and difficulties from their therapy work and which will allow them to meet challenges in a confident manner.
