Chris Dubois is a Clinical Intern working under clinical supervision at Urban Balance. He is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Counseling at Northwestern University.
He believes key foundational pieces to therapy are empathy, collaboration, and meeting the client where they are at through an understanding of the client’s history and intersections. Using these foundational pieces, he works together with the client to cultivate a safe space where the client has the opportunity to look at, and work towards accepting, their most authentic self. He feels that accepting ourselves is the first step to loving ourselves and becoming a more effective person, if desired.
Some schools of thought Chris leans into to help facilitate this process are person-centered therapy, existentialism, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution-focused therapy.
