Psychotherapist - LPCA
I have experience in individual counseling, crisis counseling, and substance use counseling, and my areas of interest include trauma, relationships, and gender and sexual minority issues. I am a sex-positive therapist. My view of counseling is that it is the therapeutic relationship between counselor and client that facilitates self-exploration and change. While self-exploration can lead to some painful emotions or realizations, it can ultimately lead to rewarding growth and benefit. I believe that no two clients are the same and that my counseling approach should be flexible and meet the specific needs of each client. My approach to counseling integrates a number of different techniques and theories with an underlying gestalt theoretical foundation.According to gestalt therapy, context affects experience, and a person cannot be fully understood without understanding his or her context. With this in mind, gestalt psychotherapy recognizes that no one can be purely objective—including therapists whose experiences and perspectives are also influenced by their own contexts—and practitioners accept the validity and truth of their clients’ experiences. I am interested in learning more about your context.
