The qualities that I feel are most important in a therapist are warmth, insight, and the ability to engage with clients. The most important element in the client’s healing process is the chemistry and relationship with a therapist. If you are able to truly emotionally connect with your therapist, that is half the battle. You should always relate to your therapist when you feel your sessions are helpful or unhelpful.
I am a trauma-informed therapist and use an integrated approach, incorporating psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and sensorimotor psychotherapy. I am not EMDR or IFS certified but incorporate these modalities into my practice. I help clients reframe the way they view problematic aspects of their life. I also provide clients with a variety of coping strategies to decrease depression, ease anxiety, and increase emotional regulation.
I also have expanded my practice and conduct teletherapy sessions with clients who are unable to come to my office.
My office is handicapped accessible.
