Using a strengths-based approach, Rabije works collaboratively to identify and build upon the strengths that each client already possesses. Collaboration is a vital aspect in the therapeutic relationship, where we work alongside one another to create a more fulfilling life.
Rabije uses an integrative approach to therapy that primarily consists of cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness and meditation. While those are the primary theoretical orientations, a variety of techniques are used to meet individual needs. Rabije believes in providing evidence-based therapy to all populations, through the recognition and inclusion of the unique identity of individuals reflected in their beliefs, cultural traditions, and viewpoints.
