Dr. Hoffman’s approach to individual therapy prioritizes a comfortable, supportive and non-judgmental counseling setting where clients feel safe to examine current and on-going concerns. Her intention is to foster an environment where clients feel safe to explore their situations and experiences as well as their relationships with themselves and others, especially as viewed within an ecological context (i.e., individual, societal and cultural influences). Clients are viewed as experts on themselves who are powerful and fully capable of setting and achieving desired goals, while also receiving support from others when taking steps and risks necessary for change.

Her therapeutic approach is firmly grounded in an integration of Time Limited Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy, and Feminist Therapy.
