My Approach to Helping
We are all just walking each other home. " - Rumi Hello, I am Bo. I am a licensed psychotherapist, a licensed clinical addiction specialist, and a psychiatric social worker. Thank you for considering me as your clinician. I understand it is difficult to reach out for help. Right now, you may be navigating feelings of shame, embarrassment, and anger. I want you to know that I have been there too, in the middle of the storm, darkness all around. Sometimes in life and in our relationships, we can all become "stuck".
There is a way out, and the way you are feeling now does not have to be the way you feel indefinitely. Most of the solutions to problems do not come intuitively. One role as your therapist is as a mentor or guide, assisting in navigating the rough winds of the storm.
I incorporate psychoanalytic, cognitive, dialectical-behavioral, and mindfulness approaches into psychotherapy. I aspire to create a therapeutic space where you will feel safe and comfortable. A positive therapeutic relationship is at the heart of successful treatment. I view trust, honesty, and humor as key ingredients to forming an effective working relationship with my patients.
