As a clinician I treat
who have histories of trauma, substance abuse/dependency issues, anxiety and depressive disorders, personality disorders, co-occurring disorders, and very relevant to the times we are living in, I work with many individuals who feel intense loneliness and isolation.
My therapeutic approach focuses on my belief that when it comes to an individual’s life, they are the expert. As a therapist, it is my job to be expert on theory and techniques, to assist client's in realizing their own capabilities of deciding where they want to go, and I encourage the strengths within themselves to pursue wherever that is and to identity what that will take to get there. First, however, I must address the level of resistance a client shows.My treatment heavily looks at aspects of internalization, pulls from psychoanalytic theories of neurosis, specifically signal anxiety, and focuses on realizing personal agency.
