About My Clients
I specialize in working with couples, people who are highly sensitive, experienced trauma, suffer from Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, Loss & Grief, or are experiencing a life transition. I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. Additionally, I am genuinely respectful and considerate of all different sexual and gender identities, cultures, ethnicities, and faiths.
My Background and Approach
My approach involves building upon clients’ strengths, providing psycho-education, exploring the presenting problem or symptoms, teaching self-regulation skills, and helping clients to manage the difficulties in their lives. Additionally, I utilize my knowledge of mythology, symbols, archetypes, and psychoanalytic techniques to help clients to get to the core of their problem. Every person has unique sets of dynamics, experiences, and diversity that make up who they are. The nuances and the reasons why people come to therapy are as diverse as people themselves. Thus, I use an eclectic approach to create an individualized treatment plan for each client with the client’s involvement. A specialty that I offer for couples is working with couples utilizing Imago Relationship Therapy. IRT offers couples a new beginning, a way to connect, restore safety, end conflict, and helps couples understand their purpose in this cosmic journey together. I offer hour long sessions for 150$.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I lived in 3 different countries throughout my formative years which has inspired in me a love for multiculturalism, open-heartedness, resilience, and a passion for helping people heal. Where appropriate, I draw from my interest, knowledge, and experience with psychoanalytic approaches, mythology and eco-therapy to assist my clients. I offer clients a Jungian approach to therapy which incorporates exploration of archetypal patterns, shadow work and integration, learning about the individuation process, active imagination practices, and sand tray therapy interventions. “The essence of therapy is in making clients feel deeply known as they really are and deeply accepted as they really are.” -David G. Martin.
