Many people find therapy to be a tremendous asset in managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family conflicts, and the hassles of daily life. In the process of therapy, you will acquire a more efficient set of coping skills to manage your anger, depression, and other emotional turmoil you might be experiencing. Improving your communication skills will help you to effectively negotiate the conflicts that you are encountering in your interpersonal relationships and advance the overall quality of your life.
My approach is interactive, warm, open minded, and encouraging. I vision therapy as a two way relationship based on mutual trust and respect in a safe and private environment. In our collaborative work and through providing positive feedbacks I will assist you to acquire a healthy set of coping skills and gain deeper insight about your psychology. This insight will eventually “unstuck” you from repeating unhealthy behaviors by breaking old patterns and developing new ones. This personal investment will surely increase your self confidence and help you move on with your life feeling more confident, powerful, and independent.
The study of human development, the mind, and human interactions is my foremost passion in life. I continue to be fascinated by individual’s psyche, capabilities, desires, and potentials, and am very compassionate with their emotional pain, disappointments, hurdles, and concerns. I am well versed in a variety of treatment approaches and have a diverse clinical background. My primary theoretical frame of reference is psychodynamic. I also employ a variety of other treatment approaches including Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), family system theory, and humanistic approaches in order to meet the specific needs of my clients. I believe that people are unique and complex and often times unaware of the many forces that drive or limit them. My work goes beyond the targeting of certain symptoms. Instead, I aim to help people find meaning and purpose in their lives, unlock creative potentials, and strengthen their relationships with themselves and with other people.
