My clinical practice is primarily informed by contemporary psychodynamic, multicultural, and cognitive-behavioral therapy interventions. These influences highlight the impact of relationships and social contexts on our self-understanding, the relationship between our perception, emotions, and behavior, and the power of research to shape clinical practice.
Humans are fundamentally social: we understand ourselves through our experiences and relationships. We are also always in a process of reinterpreting our personal histories, which bears upon how we approach new challenges. The transformative force of therapy lies in a deep sensitivity to the relationship between therapist and client. To this end, I work collaboratively with clients to identify goals that will help them work toward self-understanding, increased agency, and new skills to cope with life demands and relationships.
