I believe psychotherapy is a journey towards discovering and connecting with our authentic self. I think that authenticity begins with self-awareness, and that curiosity is essential for the exploration of our needs and values, and for building meaningful relationships. I see the relationship with my clients as the context for growth and healing, and strive to create an environment that promotes safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness, and empowerment. My interpersonal style is warm, compassionate, genuine, open-minded, and non-judgmental, assuring that the client’s voice and perspectives are valued, and their resources, capacity for change and resilience are recognized.
As a clinician, I aim to provide a secure base for clients to explore their pain and accept their vulnerability in a way that leaves them stronger and more flexible. Using a trauma-informed lens, I seek to help clients gain greater awareness of their needs and values, make connections between their past experiences and presenting problems, and develop new skills and resources. During our sessions, I focus on meeting client needs in a safe, collaborative, and compassionate manner; building on their strengths and resilience; and exploring ways to effectively cope, regulate, and transform their emotional experience. Likewise, I use a combination of mind-body strategies to help clients understand how our memories, thoughts, feelings, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our physical and mental health.
