My Approach to Helping
As a clinical psychologist, I focus on how well, satisfying, and adaptable people function both personally and in their relationships at different stages of their lives. More specifically, depending on the presenting problem, I help those struggling to work through difficult issues from various therapeutic interventions.
I do favor an insight-oriented, psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy. This approach explores the roots of emotional suffering allowing for the therapeutic relationship to evolve and encourage self-reflection and examination. At times solution-oriented and crisis intervention will be the most appropriate to address emotional, social, work, school, and/or physical health concerns that need immediate relief and constructive, healthy, adaptive solutions.
My eclectic approach includes interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, etc. From a Christian worldview, the integration of biblical principles into the therapeutic process is highly valued but never imposed on those seeking help through psychotherapy.
