Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Holistic Approach to Personal Growth
I am a humanistic
psychologist who works collaboratively with adult individuals
and couples to promote personal growth on various levels. Barriers
to personal growth can exist at personal, relational, and cultural
levels. At the personal level I consider and work with clients on
mind/body/spirit integration. Likewise, I help people to better understand
their relational strengths and challenges in the context of the therapuetic
relationship. These therapuetic relational gains can then be applied
to other relationships in their lives. At the cultural level, I realize
that being who one really is can be more difficult if it does not
fit in with mainstream culture, which is why I specialize in couples
multicultural counseling, lesbian/gay/bi
issues, and life transitions.
My client-centered approach includes working closely
with holistic health care practitioners to holistically
treat depression, anxiety, stress, and other somatic difficulties.
My background in working in clinics with naturopathic physicians, osteopathic
physicians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists has taught me the usefulness
of working integratively with holistic health care professionals. I believe
that incorporating the wisdom of other trained professionals from various
healing modalities honors the natural healing process.
I provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment where
people can come to explore and move beyond what may be getting in the
way of their having dynamic health.
