I received my MA in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University of DC, formerly American School of Professional Psychology. My background before studying Psychology was as a pediatric nurse and later a family childcare provider in Germany. These 15 years of this practical experience, enriched my expertise in the field of individual therapy and counseling especially when it comes to children. Nevertheless, my education and professional experience over 7 years leading up to Licensure prepared me for providing therapeutic services to individuals of all ages. A sound clinical knowledge-base ensures proper diagnosis and treatment based on current research and methods.
My focus is on the individual's needs. An eclectic approach incorporating cognitive-behavioral, existential and person centered theory,provides a solid foundation to acknowledge each individual's needs and difficulties. Playtherapy and EFT are especially usefull in providing therapeutic help for children
My own experience as a immigrant to this country provides me with a expertise on issues related to acculturation and assimilation to a different culture. Therefore, I am able to provide a unique understanding to individuals who have to deal with these issues at the present.
