Mushkan A. Defilippo
Licensed Mental Health Counselor - LMHC
Sometimes we find ourselves closed off, disconnected, in a state of hurt and protection, being overly critical of ourselves. This can affect our lives in many ways; as lack of self-confidence, blame, isolation, unhealthy relationships, anger, resignation or addictions. We want something more from life but we don’t know what to do and how to get what we want. I will support and encourage your growth in all aspects of your life.I see counseling and psychotherapy as a conversation, an invitation to be curious about our inner and outer experiences, our lives, our relationships with others and with ourselves. To be effective, therapy needs to be based in trust and sincerity, and of course compatibility between client and therapist. In our work together I wish to support you in experiencing a deeper awareness of your strengths and resources. I will assist you in discovering your untapped potential that will support you in addressing the challenges that you face.We will work to create authentic and loving connections with yourself and others, identify and express your honest feelings about yourself and your life.My therapeutic approach blends mindfulness, client centered and somatic counseling to foster a holistic felt experience of yourself. My emphasis is on helping you get to the heart of the matter quickly, and to release yourself from the conditioning and strategies that limit your freedom and the joy of living.
