Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Everyone has a life story filled with unique colors. Each color represents personal experiences, strengths, behaviors, relationships, and our inner world. Sometimes we find it hard to navigate through challenges and to face realities, which are unfamiliar and/or unexpected. Prior experiences may interrupt our current way of interacting, thinking, relating, and managing daily life. Stress contributes to increased anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, and relational issues. Trauma can debilitate individuals, couples, and families creating abrupt internal changes and fears. Grief over individual loss needs to be honored and acknowledged. Change occurs as a direct result of uncovering new insights. I work with individuals, children, couples, and family with the same objective to discover and grow. I use both psychodynamic and humanistic approaches to help you reach self directed goals. I will help you uncover what strengths you have and illuminate what unconscious beliefs may be motivating your current situations. I believe the therapeutic relationship can help anchor our true selves in a safe environment where growth can occur. I work diligently to promote trust. My priority is to form a collaborative relationship for change. I am genuinely focused on truly supporting who you are in order to gain insight.
