My Approach to Helping
My approach to psychotherapy is psychodynamic, and informed by Attachment and Developmental theories. In certain circumstances, cognitive-behavioral and family systems approaches and techniques are also helpful in the treatment process.
Left alone, client's thoughts and emotions can feel overwhelming and unmanageable. The curious and non-judgmental stance of the therapist can help clients deepen awareness and understanding of their pain and move out of self-defeating, limiting and critical notions of themselves.
Over time, symptoms decrease as clients are better able to manage feelings and respond genuinely and creatively to life's challenges. Clients begin to feel better about themselves and their relationships.
