My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with nearly fifteen years of experience treating individuals, couples and families. My special interests include: relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, parental dilemmas, career concerns, cultural immigration challenges, dealing with addiction to alcohol and substances, and coping with grief and loss. I believe that therapy should be adjusted to each person unique personality and so I draw from all the different types of therapies I have extensively studied and trained in throughout the years.
I hope that coming to therapy will allow you to no longer be alone with your pain. You are truly invited to come as you are... Processing the hurt enables growth and understanding. It frees you to talk about your burden, handle your distress with compassion and humor and think more clearly about ways of pragmatically dealing with your struggle.
I think good therapy calls for a sensitive ear, an open mind, a caring genuine attitude and having your best interests at heart. In providing a warm, non-judgmental environment while staying direct, practical and honest, I will try to carefully listen to your struggle, clarify aspects of it which you may not be aware of and offer my own view. Through our joint effort, I hope you uncover your full potential, grow in your self-acceptance, connect better with others and steer your life according to your values.
The decision to turn to a professional with whom you can build a safe and strong connection is very important. I, therefore, invite you to visit my website or email me to schedule a free consultation phone call. I look forward to meeting you, Edia.
