I take clients from all different backgrounds and presenting problems. Most of my clients have complex problems that start as internal struggles from depression, poor mood regulation, anxiety, racing thoughts, over-active anger, poor self-esteem, and judgment of self and others. These issues turn into interpersonal and relational problems that create felt chaos and cyclically feed those internal struggles. Clients often come in focusing on the outside chaos and miss the internal factors.
Through research proven clinical therapy models, I focus first on helping the client understand themselves and their internal functioning. This often incorporates mindfulness and self-acceptance interventions. Once clients understand their internal struggles, they can better negotiate what they can give and ask for in their relationships.
I am a possibility-minded person that believes anyone can change given an honest understanding of themselves, and consistent follow through on reasonable interventions.
