My theoretical orientation is composed of Multicultural, Psychodynamic and Existential theories. Essentially, I believe that every individual has a purpose that has a unique definition based on their personal values and beliefs. Over time however, many of us lose touch with our purpose and others of us never have the opportunity to consider what our purpose could be.
My therapeutic approach works to give clients the space to realize how they can be successful within their purpose through the awareness of the circumstances, behaviors, and thoughts within their lives which hinders them from fulfilling their highest potential. I believe to get to this form of awareness; clients should be given the time to understand how consciously and unconsciously their past and present experiences within and outside their socio-cultural upbringing work to both benefit and be a hindrance to them. Through this understanding, we can begin to overcome the obstacles keeping them from their purpose in ways that are both realistic, safe, healthy, and considerate of their values and beliefs.
As your therapist, I will create a safe space for you to explore your identity in relation to your experiences and environment. Here you can ask yourself the tough questions and allow yourself the time to come to your own answers. Together we can use these answers to understand what your highest potential looks like for you and create a plan towards beginning or continuing the journey towards your purpose.
