“The curious paradox is that, when I accept myself as I am, then I can change.”
A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Personalized Attention for All Your Needs
Person-centered therapy allows clients to take a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience.
Motivational interviewing is a therapeutic technique that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find their own internal motivation for change.
With unconditional positive regard, and while emphasizing the client-therapist relationship, your clinician will strive to create a safe environment in which you can process emotions, face challenges, and meet your goals.
Commitment to treatment by the client is an essential component of the therapeutic process. As you start this healing journey, please know that your therapist is willing to meet you where you are, and will always take into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes. Your willingness to engage is key to your success!
GENEVIEVE NAVE, LMHC
I provide psychotherapy in a private practice setting to instill self-understanding among clients and to encourage them to adopt alternative perspectives and attitudes.
With a strong background in the field of substance abuse, I specialize in addressing numbing behaviors, and their root causes.
I may be the right therapist for you if you are struggling with adjustments due to stage of life and transitions like emerging adulthood, or new motherhood. I may be the right therapist for you if you are facing challenges with fulfillment from your employment, or in your relationships, or are recovering from trauma and/or addiction.
My theoretical framework is rooted in a strong foundation of both cognitive and molecular neuroscience, and in the belief of human resilience and capacity for change.
