My Approach to Helping
When feeling disconnected from your self, others, and your environment, it may help to talk to someone to reestablish the connection, feel safe to explore, and heal.
My approach is collaborative, compassionate and I highlight my clients' strengths and internal resources. My professional strengths include knowledge, integration, and application of interdisciplinary, diverse, and multicultural viewpoints. My priority is to provide you with a confidential and supportive environment.
My background is in integrative and humanistic psychotherapies. I incorporate psychological, cultural, social, physical, existential, and spiritual perspectives in my work and I draw from a variety of therapeutic orientations depending on the issues you would like to work on. I believe in the importance of establishing an honest, safe, and genuine therapeutic relationship and using that relationship to foster change and increased self-awareness. I believe that competent and caring psychotherapy requires safety, support, trust, care, compassion, and direction. Thus, the values and principles that guide my work are: presence, authenticity, transparency, autonomy, and care. My sessions are guided by your goals, concerns, and your readiness to make changes.
