My overall approach is a solution-focused psychotherapist but depending on the client and the respective issues. I also use traditional and eclectic forms of therapy, such as talk therapy, humanistic, narrative therapy, mindfulness-based strategies, cognitive behavioral therapy, life coaching/motivational therapy. I may also pull from behavior analysis and modification strategies based on ABA principles aimed at overcoming the thoughts and behaviors that serve as obstacles to finding peace and happiness. To this end, I have a number of different approaches that can be employed and aimed at overcoming the thoughts and behaviors that serve as obstacles to finding peace and happiness.
Psychotherapy is best done as a collaborative process and establishing a positive connection and a strong alliance with your therapist are critical for any change to occur. I see my role as your partner and co-creator to help you heal, gain clarity, and grow personal in order to find the fulfillment you seek. I can help you build a healthy relationship with yourself and others. My approach to therapy is collaborative, with a focus on self-exploration, increasing insight, and empowering you to be the best version of yourself. Collaboratively, we will identify goals that you’d like to achieve through therapy. You will learn ways to identify and honor your authentic self and to maintain resiliency throughout life’s challenges.
Through our therapeutic relationship we will explore your presenting issue(s), root causes and challenges and develop a plan that promotes wellness for you to move forward. Through reflective discussion, an empathic and unbiased presence, I will assist you in uncovering core beliefs that may be preventing you from reaching your interpersonal, career, relationship, or self- actualization goals. Together we can work on accessing emotions, identifying internal strengths, finding healthier coping strategies, such as mindfulness skills, in order to better respond to stress and manage negative feelings or experiences. In order to get to the root of the matter and produce long-lasting changes, I address issues in their systems, not in isolation because the presenting problem is often is a result of larger systems. Intuitively and strategically, I use a wide variety of interventions to create space for change to occur.
The first 2-3 sessions will be set up for us to get to know each other more formally. Most clients report feeling symptom relief after 8-10 sessions.
