Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Long Beach, CA
As a therapist practicing Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, I guide clients through a compassionate exploration of their inner emotional parts. By fostering self-awareness and understanding, individuals can integrate conflicting emotions, promoting healing and a more harmonious relationship with themselves. In a safe and supportive space, I facilitate the process of navigating their internal family dynamics, leading to profound personal growth and lasting positive change.
In my role as a CBT therapist, I collaboratively work with clients to identify and reshape negative thought patterns and behaviors. Through practical strategies and focused sessions, we target specific challenges, promoting lasting behavioral and emotional change. My approach emphasizes the past and present, empowering individuals to break free from unhelpful thinking and cultivate positive change.
As an EMDR therapist, I use bilateral stimulation to help clients reprocess distressing memories and trauma, reducing emotional intensity. In a collaborative and supportive environment, I guide individuals through a structured approach to promote healing and resilience.
In treating anxiety, I create a safe space for clients to explore and understand its roots. Using cognitive-behavioral techniques and mindfulness, I help identify and challenge anxious thoughts, teaching coping strategies for symptom management. My goal is to empower clients with tools for sustained relief and improved well-being.
In trauma-focused therapy, I provide a safe and empathetic space for clients to process and heal from their trauma. Using evidence-based modalities such as EMDR, IFS or narrative therapy, we collaboratively work to address the impact of trauma on thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. My approach emphasizes building trust, fostering resilience, and empowering clients to reframe their narrative.
In addressing depression, my therapeutic approach involves providing a supportive environment for clients to explore the underlying factors contributing to their emotional struggles. Through a combination of talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, IFS and EMDR, I collaborate with individuals to reframe negative thought patterns and develop coping strategies.
