My Approach to Helping

Do you find yourself constantly contradicting yourself? A part of you wants to grow and transform into your “true” self, but then you somehow feel as if you were self-sabotaging again. You question how you can work on yourself if you are the one also stopping the growth. Pablo Neruda’s poem “We are many” describes the internal conflict that many of us feel. As a psychotherapist, I noticed that my clients needed something more than just “talk therapy.” This realization led me to be formally trained in EMDR (level I and II), Internal Family Systems (IFS) (Level I and II), and Sensorimotor Therapy (Level I) among other modalities. IFS taught me that I can “befriend” the internal conflict and embrace it with love and compassion. Once I started to see the transformation IFS brought to my life (and saw how it helped me understand my own contradicting cycle), I started to introduce it to my clients. I saw how my client’s lives were also transformed little by little from the inside out rather than relieving the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
This form of therapy goes hand in hand with my two passions: 1) helping people who have survived interpersonal trauma, PTSD, medical trauma, anxiety, depression, self-criticism, self-harming. 2) assisting helpers who feel as though their work has made them feel burnt out.
I have to admit that it takes time to heal, but it is my hope and my desire to help you in your journey of healing and transformation by simply facilitating an authentic, compassionate, and loving connection with your own humanity.
