Licensed Mental Health Counselor in new york, NY
I incorporate an intersectional understanding in my work with LGBTQ+ clients, as I understand that our community holds many different identities and life experiences. Within this diversity there are common themes that we as queer people deal with, including the prejudices of an at-times hostile society. My therapeutic approach is to understand my clients' experience and feelings, centering them in a grounded and safe space.
I provide supportive care to couples and individuals dealing with relationship issues. Communication, teamwork, intimacy and conflict-resolution skills are invaluable focuses of my approach to working through relationship issues. I am able to see multiple points of view in a conflict, and believe there is always a way forward no matter how difficult the situation may seem.
I have personal and professional experience with loss and grief. If you are seeking therapy to cope with this pain, I'm sorry for your loss. I view the pain of grief as a reflection of how important your loved one is in your life. It would be my honor to provide emotional support, perspective and healing energy during this most challenging of times.
CBT therapy has helped me to heal my own mind and I know first hand how valuable this technique is. While I bring an eclectic framework for therapy, drawing upon many techniques, CBT remains a vital part of my practice. Understanding the connection of our thoughts and emotions and increasing our mindfulness in this area is essential for progress in therapy.
Couples Counseling is a wonderful way to bring increased intimacy and improved communication to any relationship. Expressing boundaries, healing from past issues and moving forward to a future with shared goals are all part of the journey. I believe that every couple can improve their overall relationship satisfaction through counseling.
Trauma work is at the root of everything I do. Life is filled with little "t" traumas and big "T" Traumas, but we all have to deal with this pain at multiple points in our lives. The consequences of not doing so can be profound, and the opportunity for healing is a life-changing one.
