My Approach to Helping
I truly thrive when I am assisting driven, empathetic professionals to smash their self-doubt and habitual comparisons, transform into confident bad-bitches, and courageously redesign a business and life they are passionate about.
Every therapy session I provide is integrative and designed to suit each distinct client. To delve deeper into your narrative, I consciously support a limited number of clients.
I'm recognized for my straightforward style and action-centered approach to therapy, which are my most valued and in-demand attributes. Continuous affirmation without constructive intervention benefits neither of us, so rest assured I will always be transparent yet respectful with you.
While recognizing that healing forms a critical stage of the therapeutic journey, I prompt clients to start taking actionable steps toward wellness right off the bat. This strategy leads to enhanced satisfaction and progress for clients as it empowers them to address their past, present, and future in a more rounded way.
Moreover, involving clients in treatment planning boosts their sense of control during each session.
Together, we'll examine your business and personal life in a holistic way, enabling you to recapture the tranquility and confidence you've been longing for.
The treatment is driven by important philosophies such as Existentialism, Attachment Theory, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
Occasionally, I interweave elements and techniques from body-oriented mindfulness and somatic practices, modern psychoanalytic depth exploration, cognitive and dialectical behavioral theories, family systems, narrative therapy, and creative expression to further nurture your growth.
We will also explore your personal and professional roles within multicultural and feminist frameworks.
I hold the belief that achieving a fulfilled and successful life can only occur when we fully accept ourselves: the parts we consider too chaotic to reveal, just as much as the parts we regard as competent and worthy of acceptance.
