I believe the therapeutic process is a co-creation. My focus in individual therapy is primarily experiential and psychodynamic with an emphasis on exploring with you how the family system and subculture that you grew up in (attachment to your primary caregivers, family atmosphere [from highly chaotic to highly rigid], and specific geographical community, culture, and spiritual contexts) is influencing your current struggles.
I believe that often conscious and unconscious motivations (which inform our behaviors) need to be explored in order to effect change. In service to this, I attempt to integrate information from the field of interpersonal neurobiology and mindfulness practices into the therapy process as much as possible.
Additionally, I am very comfortable working with people from a variety of faith communities and who engage in a wide range of spiritual practices. I have found that integrating this into psychological work with individuals generally enhances progress and deepens the healing process.
