I applaud you for embarking on this therapeutic journey. Today, you are making a courageous choice to know yourself deeply and to awaken to a more fulfilling life.
As a licensed clinical social worker and PhD of cultural and psychological anthropology, who has spent 20 years researching how people all over the world overcome their suffering, I bring a unique background to my psychotherapy practice.
As your therapist, I invite you to explore your struggles and successes in a safe, supportive and hopeful space. I am deeply committed to listening to your story, but I owe you more than that. Listening and helping you understand how your past informs your present is a vital but partial aspect of therapy. I also promote building mental health skills and practices to help you not just understand but fundamentally CHANGE your problems and patterns.
