She relies on concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy, the community reinforcement approach, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and other therapeutic approaches, to act as an emotional, informational, and logistical support. She assists clients to identify their needs, identify and resolve personal/environmental obstacles, prioritize their goals, create plans of action, and maintain accountability.
