My Approach to Helping
As a licensed professional counselor, my practice is committed to helping individuals and couples gain access to their internal strength and to build the skills that are essential to lead a meaningful and rich life. Together, creating an a environment of resiliency, growth, acceptance and balance.
My approach in therapy is mainly influenced by a psychodynamic approach, attachment, somatic experiencing (body oriented trauma reduction) and Emotionally Focused theories.
My areas of expertise include: Depression - Anxiety - Trauma Reduction - Childhood Abuse - Phase of life issues - Discovering of Self/Self Acceptance - Relationship Issues/Couples work - Pre and Post Weight Loss Surgery Support - Overcoming Shame and beyond.
I approach each client and couple with empathy, compassion and appreciate the distinct life experience of my clients. Sessions are customized to each person's comforts and needs, helping the individual understand, acquire insight and work out issues.
