Therapy is a collaborative process, one in which client and therapist work together as a team. Since no two clients are alike, Rogeline uses a therapy approach tailor made for each individual. Every client has a special story to share with a beginning, middle, and end. She encourages her clients to envision the purpose and meaning behind their unique stories.
Rogeline practices a strength based and solution focused approach. She taps into each client’s potential, instills renewed hope, and empowers them. By utilizing the resources that they already have, clients can continue to grow, heal, and ultimately thrive in the process.
