My Approach to Helping
Hello my name is Dr. Mari Casares and I have a holistic approach to understanding and treating my clients. Mental health is extremely important to our overall physical and spiritual wellbeing and yet it is often neglected. I help my clients prioritize mental wellbeing. I have an interactive style and work to establish a safe non-judgmental space for you to look into yourself. I like to take time to understand how you came to be who you are and see the problem as you see it. I am attentive to the factors that affect and contribute to the unique way people approach life such as childhood experiences, culture, race and spiritual beliefs. Helping people with relationship is the core goal of most of my practice. This might mean helping you with a family relative, a romantic partner or a better relationship with yourself.
More Info About My Practice
The search for a psychologist begins when you realize that something in your life needs to change. Changing to adapt to present situations can be very difficult. Fear, sadness and anxiety can sometimes cloud our ability to clearly see the multiple options ahead. I work closely with my clients to identify options and resources within themselves and the environment to promote healthy transitions. While change in life is inevitable our approach and management can make a real difference to our mental wellbeing
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in helping people who are struggling in their relationships; whether these are friendships, family, work or romantic in nature. Being in a healthy and caring relationship is important for our emotional and physical well-being. However, life happens and whether it is stress, pain, or a crisis our relationships suffer. Sometimes the emotional distance widens leaving us feeling disconnected.
I have vast experience in helping families and couples to connect. I assist my clients in identifying what contributes to the problem and in understanding how the obstacles that interfere with intimacy can be addressed and repaired.
My goal is to help you reestablishing intimacy by increasing understanding and by helping you communicate more effectively.
