I see the underlying goal for most clients as wanting to find meaning in life. At the heart of this is clarifying one's identity. This leads to a sense of purpose in life and connection within oneself and with others. Having a stable sense of self greatly helps people face the challenges and uncertainty that is inherent in our human experience. I work with individuals who are striving to be more authentic, helping them celebrate their individuality. I also work with individuals who lacked safety and security and/or experienced trauma through processing emotions and instilling a sense of empowerment.
I create a safe space by being nonjudgemental and open to all unique ways of being in this world. I primarily draw from existential, attachment, and psychodynamic theories. As each person who comes through my door is unique, I integrate several modalities to tailor my approach to best fit each individual client's needs.
I have advanced training in clinical psychology through my enrolment in a Doctor of Clinical Psychology program at Adler University since 2013.
