Marriage and Family Therapy - Intern
Hello, my name is Grishma Poudel, and I am a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern. I believe that when there’s an issue it not only affects the individual member of the family but also the entire family members, their relationships with each other and the family unit as a whole. Therefore, when a client comes to the therapy my focus is not just on the individual, but also their relationships with their family. I emphasize on communication, coping skills, constructive problem solving, and ways to build trust and strengthen healthy relationships in a family system.
I would consider my therapeutic style to be strategic. I provide a safe therapeutic setting for my clients to replicate family interactions and conversations to resolve problems specific to the family structure and create behavioral change. I also demonstrate empathy, compassion, and respect to make my clients comfortable and at ease. I work mainly with children, adolescents, teens, adults, couples, and families. My goal is to be a facilitator and facilitate my clients to live a happy, healthy, and peaceful life.
