“I can help you reconnect with the inner strength that lies dormant within you and together we can awaken your passion for life.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
From a young age, I was interested in human beings and interpersonal interactions. I often wondered, “Why do some people tend to find happiness naturally while other people struggle?” I started studying and observing, intent on learning human behavior to answer this question. I always wanted to help people improve their lives, find their way to harmony, and gain a better understanding of themselves and their surroundings. For a number of years, I worked in an educational university setting and have recently fulfilled my long-standing desire to practice in a one-on-one setting. Mental health has long been and still is my passion in life.
What should someone know about working with you?
Our first meeting will normally consist of an intake session where we will familiarize ourselves with each other. We will briefly discuss your familial and social background and influences. During our sessions, we will work together toward attaining small goals and then gradually working toward the overall goal of self-fulfillment and contentment. I can help you reconnect with the inner strength that lies dormant within you and together we can awaken your passion for life. My style is open, direct, supportive, flexible, and adaptable to an individual's specific needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I bring a range of approaches but tailor my work to the specific personality of each client.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I strongly believe that a therapist has to continue learning and exploring new techniques. I participate in professional training at the Psychodrama Institute of New York. I am constantly participating in group and individual educational sessions and incorporating them into my approach. I participate in psychosynthesis training and psychodrama training and I keep up-to-date on new and evolving treatment methodologies.
