Are you or your child struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, or emotional pain? Do you and your spouse fight all the time or have difficulty communicating? Do you feel like you are stuck, getting left-behind, or just not "good enough"? In therapy we will build on your strengths, helping you or your child gain confidence, self-compassion, and self-acceptance. You can learn to better express your needs to your spouse and to yourself. You can gain coping skills for managing difficult emotions and for more effective parenting. In couples therapy you will learn to create a more nurturing relationship. I am looking forward to helping!
In a warm and supportive atmosphere we will explore your needs and your goals. Therapy will be tailored to your circumstances, helping you grow and become more confident. In therapy we will draw from mindfulness and other tools to help you become more empowered. You can become more grounded, more fulfilled, more heard, and develop healthier relationships.
Many of us, including 1st and 2nd generation immigrants, struggle with feelings of belonging. You can expect expert care that helps you build connection and meaning. We can work together to help you heal, feel connected, and accept yourself. Reaching out for help, admitting vulnerability, takes tremendous strength. In therapy we will build on that strength.
你是否曾在人群中仍旧感到孤独?你是否曾感觉伤痛没有尽头?你是否曾觉的内心空虚,怀疑人生的意义?你是否挣扎过纠结过,问过自己:我究竟为什么是这样?我到底想要什么?究竟哪里出了错? 如果你看到这里,说明你多少是在寻找答案,属于你的答案。或许你想要跟父母和解,或许你想要理解子女,或许你想要在伴侣身上要一个答案,或许你想要成长为更好的自己。又或许你只是想能少难过一点。
对我来说,心理治疗是一个自我认知的过程。心理治疗师其实就像一面镜子,可以帮助你更好的看清楚自己以及自己的生活。我的心理治疗哲学是存在主义哲学,也就是说我手里的这面镜子是用来帮你映照出你的存在,陪伴你探寻你的意义。无论是你的人际关系,生活中你的选择,还是你和别人对你的看法,甚至你所拥有的东西,实际上都是一种你的自我表达,包含了你的存在。而通过探索分析这样的自我表达,我们可以一起看清楚你的样子,从而帮助你更自由的生活,不辜负自己也不辜负所爱。
有时候我觉得寻求心理治疗的过程就像是体验心灵按摩,不是只有在有心理疾病的时候才需要治疗。压力大的时候可以减压,感觉身心不一致的时候可以让自己找回掌控感,心灵痛苦煎熬的时候可以缓解伤痛。而不同的治疗师有不同的风格,不同的来访者也有不同的性格喜好,所以有时候需要体验过不同的治疗师才能明白自己适合的是什么样的方式。不管你曾经有没有接受过心理治疗,如果你仍在寻找合适的治疗师,无论你是否选择我,我都希望你能够多给自己一些机会,多去尝试,不要放弃寻找。你一定会找到自己需要的帮助的。
