I use an eclectic approach, which means I tailor the therapeutic approach to fit the needs of the client. I often utilize a trans-inclusive
feminist and relational approach, through which we would explore the power one has in their lives, where that power is being restricted, and what one can do to balance the power dynamics in a relationship. One of the most impactful aspects of the feminist approach is to work on communication styles, to help individuals stand up for their needs and communicate effectively. I also often incorporate a narrative approach that centers the client’s story the way they see it and works to help clients understand the different facets of their stories. Along with these, I have training in psychodynamic
approaches to understand the impact of one’s past in their present, client-centered lens, CBT, etc.
These approaches firmly center the client. They establish that the client is the expert in their own experience, and the therapist is there to guide.
What works for one client may not work for another and the way to know what works is to have an open discussion about it. I would love it if clients shared what works for them, but even more so what doesn’t work for them so we can work collaboratively to tailor the treatment to your needs.
