THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES, FAMILIES
My therapeutic approach is integrative and holistic. As a therapist, I don’t believe that a single approach can help all clients, but rather counseling techniques must be tailored to individual needs and personal circumstances. Integrative therapy is a combined approach that brings together different elements and strategies of various therapies.
My integrative approach is also client-centered. It takes into consideration the individual’s personality as well as the physical, emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual strengths and needs of the individual.
I typically integrate culturally sensitive evidence-based practices to treat mental health issues, and to instill self-understanding and new attitudes towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix. Therapy is a healing process that requires active participation and investment from the client. But in the end, making small changes in self-defeating behavior and in feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. During this process, my most important goal is to provide my clients with a confidential, supportive, and non-judgmental space.
Premarital counseling helps couples prepare for marriage by providing information, guidance, and tools which will provide for a strong foundation and promote healthy relationships. Couples explore the individual and couple’s strengths and areas to focus on to minimize the chances of those issues becoming problems in the future. Research shows that premarital education benefits individuals and couples by improving their communication and conflict resolution skills, increasing their satisfaction with and commitment to their marriages, and reducing their conflict and odds of divorce. 1
