Life can bring both positive and negative events, from the birth of a healthy child to the death of a loved one. Sometimes we feel that we have everything to be happy, but still experience anxiety and depression. Sometimes those feelings flood our body with unpleasant sensations and constant invasion of thoughts that don't allow us to enjoy meaningful activities. However, even when we think that we cannot escape from the feelings of emptiness, tension, and despair, there are ways to find hope, emotional growth, and healing.
Psychotherapy is a vehicle of HOPE, GROWTH, and HEALING.
My passion is assisting clients to create their own journey of restoration and HOPE, through self-discovery and risk taking. A journey that requires experiencing all emotions fully and intensely, trusting their pace and building the confidence to face fears. It encompasses emotional GROWTH that allows them to develop the skills to let go of excessive need for control, accept what cannot be changed, and overcome life challenges. My clients become experts on themselves and on managing symptoms and intrusive thoughts that contaminate their minds. The ultimate goal of that journey is HEALING: realizing that they're equipped with the strength to experience all emotions with acceptance and start having meaningful satisfying lives.
Psychotherapy is also a dynamic process that takes place in a welcoming environment. Every session is uniquely designed to meet individual needs, using research-supported treatments and a touch of creativity. I love working with adults and my career as an educator has also well equipped me to work enthusiastically and effectively with children and adolescents.
I employ Cognitive Behavior Therapy to treat a variety of disorders, such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and Disruptive Behaviors. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) , Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) when needed as well. I integrate play and art therapy in my work with younger clients, creating a hands-on experience.
My greatest satisfaction overall is observing my client's progress.
