Clinical ideas that inform my practice:
- Everyone utilizes a variety of strategies to survive, some strategies are healthy, and some less so, but all exist to support survival and coping.
- Change is possible, but is not always the only path.
- Acceptance can be hard, but liberating.
- The simple act of sharing and constructing your narrative is healing.
- Mental wellness is a marathon, not a sprint.
- You are stronger than you realize.
