I believe that mental health is an integral part of overall health. Though there is often a stigma attached to seeking support for mental health concerns, in reality seeing a therapist is no different than seeing a physician. In my opinion, seeking mental health support is simply one part of ensuring one's holistic wellness.
Though people seek therapy for a variety of reasons, the common theme is their hope for future improvement, growth, and happiness. The relationship between the client and therapist is an important tool that can facilitate these positive changes. Through our therapeutic relationship, we will discuss the goals you hope to achieve in therapy, explore how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, build fundamental coping skills, and focus on a strengths-based approach, which acknowledges that, even when people are struggling, they already have many strengths which helped get them where they are today and can help them get where they want to go.
As a clinical and educational psychologist with over 20 years of experience, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with people from diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. I acknowledge, respect, and value each individual's culture, gender, race, religion, and sexual identity, and my goal is to create an open therapeutic relationship in which each of my clients feels accepted. By providing a supportive environment in which my clients can work towards their desired goals, I seek to help them bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to be.
