Counseling Psychology, Clinical Social Work, Psychotherapy
I'm a licensed professional.
Outside perspective and authenticity from another can be transformative. With a trusted witness providing an emotional sanctuary, a therapeutic alliance develops, allowing clients to be present with their confusion, their fears,and their histories. The power of telling one's story in one's own voice can be a source of healing from past hurts and damage. As some of the more recent brain research is indicating, new pathways and brain development can grow from such experiences. Psychotherapy can contribute to the development of a more defined sense of self.
My preference is in working with clients' over a longer period of time. Using the therapeutic space and relationship with the therapist as a transformative window, my clients develop an understanding, a deeper awareness and acceptance of self. Bearing witness to this process of self discovery and self acceptance is thrilling for me. This kind of courage and commitment to self continues to be an inspiration. and makes me passionate about my work!
