Treatment Approach

Ms. Bedsole's approach to therapy includes an eclectic theoretical perspective that takes into consideration the unique and particular needs and circumstances of each client and/or family.  She sees therapy as a collaborative process enhanced by the therapeutic relationship between client and clinician. She offers her clients a place of respect, safety and support where they can find assistance in improving their lives and their relationships.  She works from a strengths perspective, assisting clients in identifying their inherent strengths and resources in the process of resolving and managing their unique challenges in life.   Ms.  Bedsole's hope is that therapy will guide, support and encourage clients in managing their difficulties and in making positive and permanent changes in their lives.
