Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I offer an integrative track to psychotherapy to help clients transition through challenging moments in their lives. I believe that therapy is a journey toward growth, personal fulfillment and greater understanding of our selves and of those around us, achieved through a process of self-reflection. The ultimate goal: to be effective problem solvers, to be more mindful, to enrich our lives and to enrich the lives of those who surround us.<br><br>I work with an array of therapeutic issues, developing a personalized approach that is culturally sensitive and tailored to each individual’s needs to address any existing symptoms and foster functioning at the highest level.<br><br>I work with both individuals and couples of different racial and ethnic backgrounds, encouraging personal growth and development, and emphasizing each person’s ability to make choices and effect change.
