"The clinical approach I use to counseling is targeted to attend my client's needs. My preference is the Psychodynamic approach where the client and I explore the origins of their psychological discomfort and use the insights to the healing process incorporating changes in the present. Some clients however come to counseling with a sense of urgency, a need to work objectively in a specific problem with the aim of a faster solution focused to their crisis, and in these cases I support and stay present with the client's needs."

"I am a genuine listener who engages others by getting to know them, while exploring needs and goals. I believe that problem-solving begins with discovery of our inner strengths which can be used to foster healing and growth. As one begins to identify these resources and learns to use them, she/he is empowered to make changes and gain understanding about self and others previously thought impossible. While work in therapy can be difficult at times, it does not always have to be "serious business". Many people do not know how to have fun and learning this skill is always healing."

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in San Antonio, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
