“I believe self-discovery and awareness are the first steps in psychotherapy. Developing
a full awareness and acceptance of who we are is a process that can take more time
for some of us than others. My goal is to help you through this process, and to
provide the support necessary to help you live more fully and reach the next stage
of your life.
We will work together to improve the quality of your life and of your relationships.
In my experience, I have worked with clients suffering from depression, anxiety,
eating disorders, relationship problems, cross-cultural issues, and academic/career
related concerns. My approach is integrative and draws primarily from person-centered,
existentialist, and cognitive behavioral theories. Each approach has its advantages,
but together they more adequately address the variety of clients and client concerns
than one approach is able to do.
My backgrounds as a teacher and philosophy student help me to better understand your
concerns in relationship to the world we live in. The pressures and expectations
upon us and the desire to live up to those expectations can take a toll on us all.
As individuals, we all have unique experiences that have shaped who we are. I want
to help you embrace who you are, gain new insight into yourself, and live the life
you want to live.”
