My Approach to Helping
I principally utilize a depth-oriented/integrative approach that tries to understand where the patient is coming from and what caused the surface symptoms they experience. I believe all symptoms have a purpose and a hidden message behind them. I help people resolve the meaning of their depression, anxiety, and stress from a holistic standpoint. My goal is to help you solve your difficulties at the root level, rather than merely treating the surface symptoms. Additionally, I also employ cognitive behavioral strategies to help with managing symptoms and for homework purposes.
My prime areas of focus are with depression, anxiety and stress management, and attachment and family issues. I also like exploring various existential and transpersonal issues if the clients are interested.
