My Approach to Helping

For close to a year now, I have been working with a wide range of clients. I have worked with veterans and civilians suffering from military and childhood or adulthood trauma. I have worked with multicultural population struggling with identity, racism, anxiety and depression due to family and social differences. I have worked with adults who are struggling with mental disorders such as Bipolar, Schizophrenia, and Schizoaffective. I have also worked with individuals suffering from substance abuse and dual diagnosis.

I believe we are taught and create logical fallacies to justify unhealthy behavior. These thoughts keep us in bad relationships, using substances, not taking meditation for physical or mental health, staying at an unfulfilling job, letting people walk over us, and just stopping us from finding and living our purpose. During sessions, I help clients identify these logical fallacies and explore other ways of thinking that promote mental health and stability. Through the use of CBT, REBT, Guided Meditation, and Existentialism (fancy words for self-exploration), clients are given an opportunity to learn more about who they are and what they want in a safe and judgement free environment.

In session, I strive to ensure the client feels safe and comfortable enough to self-explore and find the answers within themselves. I use the framework of the client, taking into account culture, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs, family history and any other key factors that make up client's ideology and way of living. Together we explore different angles to the same problem to see how they can overcome and grow from the experience in a positive and healthy way. I believe conflict is essential to life, we grow from mistakes and hardship. I believe it is what we do with the information that makes a difference. Learning to accept who we are (good and bad), how we feel (positive and negative emotions), and confidence in our day-to-day decisions will help us find inner peace.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It can be scary to go to a stranger and discuss your dark secrets or admit you need help. Just remember courage could not exist without being scared. We all need help sometimes and it takes a lot of strength to reach out and accept a helping handing, either for yourself or for someone else. Just remember you are not alone in your struggle and one phone call can make a big difference.
