My Approach to Helping
I view psychotherapy as a deeply personal transformational process to growth regardless of where you are in life, whether in a crisis, a relationship issue, curious on who you are, or suffer a mental illness. I specialize on relationship problems, depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, sexuality, life transitions, and body image concerns. Our therapist-patient relationship will be unique, non-judgmental, and supportive. We will build a trusting space where it will be safe and comfortable to share your experiences, feelings, and thoughts. By exploring unfulfilling aspects of your life, we can work together towards a positive change.
Each person brings a unique story, personality, and worldview. While my approach is primarily psychodynamic and relational, I can draw on harm-reduction, mindfulness-based, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectical-behavioral techniques to uniquely match the needs and level of functioning of my clients to meet them where they are.
I believe in building a strong therapeutic relationship where we will explore patterns from your past and current relationships, and the thoughts and feelings that emerge in the here-and-now. We will work on your awareness of detrimental patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting that may take place unconsciously and create problems in your everyday life.
