My Approach to Helping
My mission as a clinical social worker and psychotherapist is to bare witness to my patient's narrative. Speaking to my client directly not just to their symptoms, we achieve insight and build trust towards psychological and emotional wellbeing. As a "corrective relational partner", my ultimate goal is to help my clients explore their feelings, reduce their anxiety and improve their self image and the manner in which they relate to their world. The here and now process in the psychotherapy relationship is a microcosm of life where the opportunity for change and integration happens . The is the key to successful psychological change. Overall, with my dual degree and training as a licensed clinical social worker and a psychologist, I treat all aspects of my client's life, not solely psychotherapy. This I believe creates the highest opportunity for treatment success.
