My Approach to Helping
A simple way to understand psychotherapy is to make sense together. Thus, my practice of psychotherapy is collaborative, focusing on developing and maintaining a therapeutic relationship with my clients (you).
My therapeutic approach is influenced by integrative psychodynamic psychotherapy, and different techniques are interweaved based on the session and the client. Having thorough academic training, my practice is emotionally, cognitively, biologically, and psychologically informed. Additionally, it is also guided by my interest in human development and my research on the inner child. Through therapy, the goal is to recognize and understand the patterns of thoughts or behavior, not to alter them, but just being conscious of them would aid one’s understanding of self.
Our time in therapy sessions would be your time. I believe nobody can understand your life and experiences better than you. Therefore, I aim to listen, reflect, and facilitate empathy, support, and integration; together, we can find a different or new perspective on your experiences and thoughts. My goal is to empower you to gain awareness and control over your responses and to uncover your resilience.
