I believe that psychotherapy is more than just alleviating psychological distress. The ultimate goal would be to help you cultivate a meaningful and fulfilling life. There will be instances when you are feeling "stuck" or are experiencing suffering. The time is now to invest in yourself. This is when accessing guidance from a professional outside of the current situation may provide necessary support.
To achieve this, I provide a safe and professional environment in which to explore areas of concern, difficulty, and strength. I believe our collaboration together will be key to face challenges and proceed with a more informed and aware perspective.
I practice with a collaborative perspective that focuses on awareness of life patterns, builds on strengths, and develops new coping strategies. With children, I utilize non-directive play therapy, and it is often an adjunct to parent education and coaching when a family comes to me. I integrate complementary techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each patient. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help build on her/his strengths and attain the growth that s/he is committed to accomplishing.
