More About Bonnie
My therapeutic approach involves collaboratively cultivating open and non-judgemental communication with empathetic understanding and empowering active self-work through critical thinking and self-exploration. Through the therapy process, we will focus on rediscovering your strengths, individually or in a coupled partnership, and work towards increasing genuine, attentive, and complementary dialogues within your interpersonal relationships and with yourself. By clarifying and enacting self-compassion, healthy reciprocal boundaries, and discovering effective coping strategies, you can gain more insight and confidence to enact the choices that construct your lived-world.
