My Approach to Helping
I believe that there is an alchemy to being human and that it is in our uniqueness and originality that we most flourish. As individuals, we are separate and distinct from every other being we encounter. It is also my belief that because of our individual uniqueness we each require an individually tailored approach to psychotherapy.
The philosophy of my practice lies in meeting each individual where they are at in their process of healing and transformation, while at the same time acknowledging their own innate wisdom and ability to heal. My intention is to help individuals cultivate courage and strength to journey through their difficulties and gain insight and wisdom that will continually aid them along their life's trajectory.
My primary approach is person-centered, humanistic, and Existential, but I draw from many different modalities, wisdom traditions, and philosophical systems depending on the individuals needs and values. I place central importance on the relationship between therapist and client as the essential element in the alchemy of deep personal change.
I work to help individuals discover and connect with their own authentic self, cultivate their uniqueness and remember their own healing capacity and inner gifts.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I value and believe in the interconnections between mind, body, soul, culture, and social systems. I utilize my gifts of empathic listening, deep intuition, and an interdisciplinary collaborative style coupled with a strong clinical acumen to help individuals achieve their highest psychological, emotion, & mental well-being.
