My Personal Theory of Therapy
Innate empathy, genuine concern, and compassion are personal characteristics that I bring to my role as a clinical psychologist. These qualities have been the foundation on which my clinical strengths have emerged and continue to flourish. Although I believe that a comfortable, non-judgmental environment that conveys congruence, empathy, and unconditional positive regard are the bedrock of therapy, at times, more directive approaches may be necessary. Nevertheless, it is the client’s responsibility for to pursue change. Unlike taking medication for psychological problems, psychotherapy requires sincere effort and willingness to engage on the part of the client. Therapy requires active participation from the client. Rest assured that I will be there for you every step of the way and remain empathic to your struggles and needs.
I realize that during these hectic times coming to office visits can be difficult; often, the number one obstacle to receiving mental health services is time. Therefore, I hope to offer enough flexibility in my schedule and treatment locations (online or face-to-face) to meet your needs. If you require additional accommodations with respect to time and location, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss further options.
