For whatever is bringing you to therapy, I will foster a safe and open space that provides support and validation while being a non-judgmental witness to your personal story. Working collaboratively with you, we will create and work towards therapeutic goals through the exploration of past and current experiences and how they have built beliefs, making connections from past and present. As we tie together these connections, we will work to identify how they create negative or unrealistic core beliefs, while instilling more helpful and positive ones that can lead to greater overall wellbeing and a more positive sense of self.
As a clinician, I utilize a psychodynamic approach that is informed through developmental and strengths-based lenses, as well as incorporating a family systems orientation. I believe the relationships formed between clients and their families serve as a catalyst for therapeutic growth and change. It is through this relationship that core beliefs can be explored in order to gain further understanding of their impact on current thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. In my clinical work, I like to utilize tailored inventions, respecting personal needs, culture, and goals, to create a personalized treatment plan.
