By using interventions like analogies, education, and talk-therapy; she leads clients to alternate perspectives and development of fresh coping skills.
Mariah wants her clients to know that “You, the client, are the expert in your life. I want to be invited to walk with you. I understand that sharing your story, your life experiences, and struggles with a stranger isn’t easy. I respect and honor this. As we work together, I want to share with you ways to function well; I also want to learn from you”
