I work from the existentialist mindset where everyone is responsible for their own life and that our lives always consist of choices.
In reality, we choose everything ourselves, and not choosing is also a choice (Kierkegaard), but know that even in difficult situations, we always have a choice!
Together we can make a difference
I work phenomenologically. That means I always meet the client where the client is right now, and based on what is important here and now.
Often, past experiences, feelings, and maybe even trauma will show up, hidden behind contemporary experiences and emotions.
