My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, native French speaker, fluent in Spanish and Italian. I have considerable training and experience working with adults, adolescents and children of all ages. I am additionally trained in trauma resolution (Progressive counting...), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, attachment theory and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I have been practicing for more than 10 years in numerous clinical, school and medical environments, so I can be a strong source of support for advocacy and referrals needs. I believe in the importance of a trusting therapeutic relationship as a base to provide the needed safe haven for change. I am a goal-focused, strength-based, person centered, and solution-focused therapist. I utilize mostly evidence based practice therapy but my approach is holistic.
I am solely focused in my private practice so you can expect me to schedule sessions at convenient times for my clients, and being accessible and flexible for them. Because I do not work for an agency, I can screen my clients to make sure we are the best fit for each other and I feel we will not be, I will refer you to someone that more suitable. Also I am my own boss, so you will enjoy privacy and your file will only be seen by me.
