In our own way, everyone is just striving to be understood by others.
Theoretical Orientation * Psycho-dynamic, person-centered
Trust, relationships and interdependence can leave us vulnerable. The experience of unmet expectations can sometimes be too much for young people to process. With each client I attempt to read between the lines to hear what has not been spoken as much as what has. I always strive to create safe and open emotional space in the session to allow clients the opportunity to grow.
