    I like to follow the client’s needs and openness of what they currently need. My style is allowing the client have a place to explore themselves and their feelings as well as their struggles and mental health symptoms they are dealing with. Interventions I typically use is thought challenging techniques, teaching mindfulness techniques that best match the client, teaching feeling words and how to use them,  reframing negative language, communication skill building, and psychoeducation to help clients understand their symptoms and how they show up for the client.
