Profile
“My approach is both psychodynamic and holistic and includes empathy, understanding, compassion, and support.”
What should someone know about working with you?
My therapeutic process is quite simple and aimed at creating a nurturing and trusting open space for my clients. I believe therapy is a place to grow and achieve mental wellness goals while using a range of modalities to meet each client's uniqueness. My approach is both psychodynamic and holistic and includes empathy, understanding, compassion, and support. My goal as a counselor is to provide a wide range of treatment modalities to create interest in learning, autonomy, and self-direction. Some modalities used in treatment include mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused. At Healthy Minds Westchester, your mental health matters.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
Therapy is a process and empowering to the mindset. In therapy. I guide people through personal challenges, support their emotional challenges, and empower them to achieve a healthier mind and a healthier life. Through the therapeutic process, my goals are to see clients gain a healthier perception in life, strengthen their mindset, and build inner peace, love, and trust within themselves. With the tools gained in therapy, clients can pursue new ways to live in both their professional and personal lives. The ending result is that therapy works. “Success as a psychotherapist is not found by doing something for the client but rather being someone for the client.”- unknown.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Our world is evolving! We have access to so many social media platforms, which allows us creativity in promoting and educating about mental health and bringing awareness to removing the stigma. I love that mental health professionals are becoming more accessible through telehealth, social media, and even text. This demonstrates that we are here to help and support clients in increasing self-awareness, gaining new perspectives, decreasing their symptoms, and increasing their personal strengths while gaining a positive outlook on life. Healthy mind, healthy life.
