My Approach to Helping

My therapeutic process is quite simple and aimed at creating a nurturing and trusting open space for my clients. I believe therapy is a place to grow and achieve mental wellness goals while using a range of modalities to meet each client's uniqueness. My approach is both psychodynamic and holistic and includes empathy, understanding, compassion, and support. My goal as a counselor is to provide a wide range of treatment modalities to create interest in learning, autonomy, and self-direction. Some modalities used in treatment include mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused. At Healthy Minds Westchester, your mental health matters.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy is a process and empowering to the mindset. In therapy. I guide people through personal challenges, support their emotional challenges, and empower them to achieve a healthier mind and a healthier life. Through the therapeutic process, my goals are to see clients gain a healthier perception in life, strengthen their mindset, and build inner peace, love, and trust within themselves. With the tools gained in therapy, clients can pursue new ways to live in both their professional and personal lives. The ending result is that therapy works. Success as a psychotherapist is not found by doing something for the client but rather being someone for the client.- unknown.
