Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a therapist, I approach my work with radical acceptance and deep respect for the unique and ingenious resilience that each person possesses. I believe that the answers are here, within us, and real change is possible when we have real support and guidance. It is my hope and intention that my clients feel closely accompanied and well understood. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern in private practice under the supervision of Jessica Wolk Benson, MFT (MFC 45896). My current orientation and training is primarily focused on Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. I feel myself most at home in the AEDP model, with its mindful and embodied experiential approach; its profound and skillfully applied understanding of neuroscience, neuroplasticity, and attachment and psychodynamic theories; and the authenticity and intimacy that it allows and encourages in each therapeutic relationship. In the process of therapy, rather than viewing struggles as located solely within the individual, I acknowledge the individual, family, community, institutional, social, historical, and spiritual contexts that shape a person’s life. I am committed to providing a space that is inclusive and responsive to multiple expressions and dimensions of identity, culture, history, lifestyle, and life experience. I offer individual, couples, and family therapy in English and Spanish.
