Mimi believes that we were all created for connectedness. In her counseling sessions, she constantly strives to create and maintain professional relationships that are warm and trusting through an atmosphere of compassion, empathy and authenticity. In her treatment, Mimi aims for constant collaboration to uncover the unhealthy cycles that present as a barrier for achieving balance. Mimi utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavior approach while supporting her clients in addressing challenges. Through the examination of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, Mimi and her clients collectively identify healthy coping mechanisms to promote a happier, more productive life. To accommodate the specific needs of each client, Mimi develops a personalized approach, encouraging each client to (re)discover, own, and build on strengths that will serve to break the cycles that have been rooted in pain. Feeling understood, which is one of Mimi’s primary objectives in therapy, will certainly facilitate this process.
