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.
