My clinical work is founded around my values of compassion, equality, flexibility, and authenticity. I take a client-centered and evidence based approach to empower my clients to navigate life challenges with more ease by: discovering what is really important to them; shifting the perspective on their current struggles; and strengthening their life skills and resilience to more effectively deal with social, professional, academic, vocational, personal, familiar, emotional, and interpersonal challenges that brings us pain -an inevitable part of just being a human. My treatment approach is Acceptance & Commitment Training (ACT).
ACT is about taking effective action both mindful and guided by our values. The purpose of ACT is to increase psychological/behavioral flexibility and therefore our physical, emotional, and social well-being. I will assist you in handling more effectively your pain and to persist in actions that will make your life work, even when in the face of this pain.
We'll practice a variety of behavioral skills (acceptance, mindfulness) to shift the unfriendly relationship you have to your own painful thoughts, feelings, memories, impulses that typically get in the way of pursuing what you most want. I want to meet you where you are at and help you get to where you want to be. Let me join you in this journey.
Mi trabajo clínico se centra en mis valores de compasión, igualdad, flexibilidad, y autenticidad. A través de un enfoque centrado en el paciente y basado en evidencia científica, busco ayudar a mis pacientes a navegar los desafíos de la vida con más facilidad mientras descubren lo que relamente da significado a sus vidas. Al final de la terapia, espero que mis pacientes tomen una perspectiva diferente a los problemas actuales y puedan enfrentar de manera más efectiva los desafíos sociales, profesionales, académicos, personales, familiares, emocionales, e interpersonales, que nos causan dolor como parte inevitable de ser humanos.
Trabajo con la Terapia de Aceptación y Compromiso, la cual busca que tomes acciones efectivas, conscientes, y guiadas por tus valores. A este proceso se le llama flexibilidad psicológica, el cual facilita nuestro bienestar emocional y social. Te ayudaré a manejar tus dificultades de manera más efectiva y a persistir incluso en medio del dolor.
Practicaremos habilidades de comportamiento (aceptación, atención plena) para cambiar la forma en que te relationas con tus pensamientos, sentimientos, e implusos que generalmente se interponen en la búsqueda de lo que más deseas. Quiero conocerte donde estás y ayudarte a llegar a donde quieres estar. Déjame unirme a ti en ese viaje.
