I am licensed in California with 11 years of professional work experience. Having a relationship with a therapist can be vital in avoiding pitfalls and taking advantage of new opportunities. A therapist can help a client attain goals by detecting and confronting mental illness, relationship conflicts and other challenges in a timely manner. I strongly believe that attaining one's goals is significantly more likely with the support and expertise of a therapist.
I have been fortunate in that I have interacted with both clients and people in my personal life with a great variety of cultural, socioeconomic, gender identification and sexual orientation backgrounds. I have become acutely sensitive to the prejudice and fear many people face. My work with past clients has reinforced for me that successfully overcoming these and other barriers is essential in improving the odds of their experiencing happy, fulfilling lives. I am experienced in assisting clients in facing and overcoming past and present conflicts. I am also well-versed in helping clients with relationship issues, goal achievement, motivation and self-image.
I know it is necessary to provide clients with a safe environment. The demands of coping with everyday life necessitate a therapeutic setting where clients feel secure in trusting that their best interests are always the highest priority. This allows current challenges and past conflicts to be addressed in the most non-threatening and most sensitive and helpful ways possible. I monitor closely if anyone has any difficulties with the therapeutic environment they are experiencing.
My aim always is to create an environment that is filled with trust, security and sensitivity. This trusting is something I make sure is maintained in all interactions throughout the therapeutic process. Addressing your challenges is no small task and you should take great pride in your courage to seek an expert helper in your pursuits.
