Approaches to Therapy
This is not cookie-cutter therapy.
Our supportive and collaborative approach to therapy is shaped by your individual needs. Compassionate clinicians provide you with a fresh perspective that will help you cope with your immediate situation, realize your potential, and build resiliency for the future. See the section below for the approaches to therapy we utilize at Kindred Psychology:
- Acceptance and commitment
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again. –Eric Roth, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
