Philosophy of Care
I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families and have a theoretical orientation that is client-centered and systemic, meaning that client’s goals, beliefs, values are honored, and respected. My approach is integrative, holistic, and considers the whole person which includes mind, body, and spirit. I take an individualized approach with each and every client to ensure their goals, hopes, and dreams are realized.
I enjoy exploring client’s motivations, drives, strengths and edges, which allow them to explore their capacity for growth. I advocate for my clients to practice radical self-acceptance and compassion for themselves and others.
I help clients to take personal responsibility for their health and
advocate for them to have agency of their lives, which can include encouraging clients to do their part to heal and grow outside of
I derive immense satisfaction from helping my clients heal from
trauma, recover from depression and cope with anxiety. I understand that stress and suffering are inherent aspects of life and I seek to support clients in finding ways to manage stressors. I take an integrative approach to psychotherapy that allows people to
experience the healing and therapeutic properties found in martial
arts and in nature.
