My Approach to Helping

In addition to my core training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, I also participated for several years within the first continuing-education program for psychotherapists in the U.S. in Carl Rogers\\\' Person-Centered Therapy approach. Person-Centered Therapy emphasizes that you are the primary expert concerning your goals, values and needs. As your therapist, my being genuine, my emphatic understanding of your experience of your life, as well as my accepting you unconditionally, without judgment, are essential elements in the therapeutic relationship, facilitating your embracing your authentic self. More recent approaches in the evolution of clinical psychology of Positive Psychology, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have enhanced the theoretical and applied therapeutic frameworks within which I work as a psychologist.
