About My Clients
Pursuing therapy is a courageous act because it is a process where you can grow and evolve. I like to think of therapy as a collaborative healing experience where we can work together to help improve the aspects of your life that are troublesome. I'll help you discover your untapped strengths and potential in the process. My hope is that you can feel empowered, increase your confidence, and develop a better understanding of yourself.
My Background and Approach
I choose to use an integrative approach, including psychotherapy and hypnosis, due to different personality types, socio-cultural factors, and the individual needs and goals of each client. My uniqueness is found in my patience, compassion, and well-developed ability to bridge the mind and body in a powerful and healing way. I use the Biopsychosocial model, which asserts that any issues we face are affected by biological, psychological, and socio-cultural factors in order to understand the WHOLE person and achieve deeper healing. My biggest aspiration is for clients to feel accepted and supported in therapy as well as to be challenged to forge their best self!
Why I Became a Therapist
For the longest time, I thought it was impossible to heal our bodies and minds. Through my own experience with psychotherapy and hypnotherapy as a patient and a therapist, I've found out the greatest news ever. We CAN heal. Our minds/bodies are actually on the same team and when we realize this, our lives can change forever! The symptoms we experience, whether it is an obsessive thought or a pain in our stomachs, is a communication from our mind/body. When we learn to better understand this communication and make the necessary changes, then we can actually move forward from them. When I started my own therapeutic journey, I thought I just had to get rid of all of the things of I was feeling because they were so painful. Once I was able to understanding the feelings and thoughts I was experiencing my life changed forever. In my clinical experience, Psychotherapy and Hypnosis are some of the most powerful healing tools that we have, and I'd love to have the chance show you them!
