How I Work With Students
When working with students, I use a collaborative and strengths-based approach that integrates Interpersonal theory, the Multicultural Framework and Ecological model. I work with my clients in exploring the multiple systems in which they are embedded in and identifying potential barriers and supports within their cultural contexts. I conceptualize the goals for therapy to include increasing my clients' self-awareness, coping skills and their overall sense of empowerment.
