My Approach to Helping
Do you want to overcome depression or anxiety and feel confident? Are you struggling with challenging relationship(s)? Do you find yourself getting angry quickly. Sometimes life transitions get difficult to manage. For example how helpless and anxious most people feel due to the current with COVID-19. For 20 years I have been helping people with emotional, psychological and relationship problems. We can work collaboratively and holistically to strengthen the mind, body and soul connections. We will focus on physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your personality. We will build upon your strengths, your personal resources and virtues to realize your true potential that will help you heal from within.
You don't have to be alone in this journey. we will work together to use non-pathologizing, self empowering treatment techniques to get to the core of the problem(s) you are dealing with. This will facilitate your healing, which will lead to deep inner changes instead of just superficial ones. You will develop a new way to think about yourself, others and the world at large. Your inner wisdom will enlighten you and you will realize your sense of being the master of your destiny in personal, social and professional aspects of your life.
More Info About My Practice
My work as a licensed clinical psychologist for 20 years has taught me to build upon my clients' strengths and resilience. The therapist-client relationship is the core of a healing process. Therefore I will initiate the therapeutic process by building a trusting relationship with you. I will try my best to put myself in your shoes so I can see what your world looks like and what it must feel like to you. I will do a thorough assessment of your treatment needs because a comprehensive assessment provides the foundation needed for effective treatment and a positive outcome. I will review the progress of our work together every 6-8 weeks or as needed to accomplish our goals.
My interventions are tailored to your unique individual needs and expectations.
I am certified in Clinical Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a short term highly effective treatment for anxiety, depression, pain, trauma. It works well for smoking cessation, weight loss, pain management and habit control such as gambling, porn addiction and other addictive behaviors. I am also trained in EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, a short term yet one of the most effective treatments for trauma. I do forensic evaluations such as competency to stand trials. I also work with clients involved with the legal system due to divorce or child custody matters. In addition I perform standardized psychological testing and evaluations for immigration purposes.
