My Approach to Helping
Are you a helping professional looking for a private, non-medical model therapist not focused on diagnosis? I've gained an understanding of thinking patterns and together we can recognize yours to make you better at what you do. One of my passions is working with other therapists and counselors who want a safe and anonymous setting to work through and process difficulties. I want to learn about your account of events, how you manage your relationships and the environment that has shaped your experience.
My clinical approach is to provide empathic support and practical feedback to help you effectively address personal life challenges. With compassion and understanding, I will work with you to build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing. I'll share with you my academic, clinical and personal knowledge of how to be mentally fit. If you are ready and committed to look inside, I welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My expertise is in working with adolescents and adults struggling o manage their mood and anxiety concerns. I believe in creating ways to reduce psychological problems without relying solely on medication. I focus initially on containing the problem or symptoms and then moving toward a state of healing with Mindfulness and EMDR interventions.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy allows a person to gain insight into what is preventing them from becoming who they really are. This could be past events that trouble you or worries about the future. Together we will find the source and effectively process what you are struggling with. This is done effectively through the creation of professional bond between the therapist and the person in therapy, which includes a shared agreement regarding the goals to work on as well as the form of psychological intervention used. A collaborative agreement on the tasks and the goals of where the therapy work is headed is accomplished by the therapist's attuned, appropriate, and nonjudgmental response.
