Dr. Crane’s Approach to Therapy
“Through compassion and careful, nonjudgmental listening, I strive to empower my clients to feel confident and capable of addressing their life challenges.
I find that too often people internalize their symptoms or diagnoses, confusing these negative feelings with their identities (I am anxious, I am depressed, I am bipolar). Rather than focus on diagnoses, I help clients identify unhelpful, uncomfortable feelings and thoughts that may be contributing to their current life challenges.
Together, my clients and I figure out how to best address those challenges. I view myself as a partner in my client’s healing process. The work is done by the client. I provide support, guidance, and information; the gains made are because of the client’s effort.
Fit between a therapist and client is the most important indicator of success – a client needs to feel comfortable. If I’m not a good fit, I will help find a different therapist.
Therapy is an important component of healing and addressing challenges, but often only one part of a system of solutions. I understand and value the need for addressing challenges from a multifaceted approach. I work with my clients to help find additional providers as needed to address sleep, nutrition, pain, etc. I look forward to meeting you.”
