One of my mentors taught me that we all do the best we can with what we have. Too often there is a stigma about going to counseling or therapy and people are discouraged because they dont want to be viewed (or view themselves) as deficient. This stigma exists all over the globe. Instead of judging people for getting help, I commend them for being confident enough to recognize their needs and do what is necessary to meet them.
My work with each client, couple, and family is tailored to what is needed at the time. For some, therapy will feel more directive and goal oriented. For others, it may feel evolutionary, exploratory, and emotion focused. However, all clients will have the same experience in working toward clearly defining a goal (unless you have one in mind already), increasing awareness of current circumstances, and taking the steps necessary to reach the goal.
The foundation of the integrative framework with which I approach therapy is largely influenced by humanistic and existential models of therapy and systems theory. No individual or system is identical to each other, and as such, all contexts in your environment/systems are considered in our work together. The structure of therapy can differ from person to person so that for some, therapy can be brief and focused, while for others, therapy can be ongoing. Naturally, how we work together will be openly discussed and decided according to what is most appropriate for your therapy goals.
