About My Clients
So many of us feel like we are stuck in certain ways- whether it be stuck in our patterns of behaviors, our overwhelming emotions, our reactions, our interpersonal relationships, or any other way we may be feeling stuck. I want to work with people who feel like they are stuck and aren’t sure where to go next. I am an integrative, individualist therapist who chooses to see therapy as a process of connecting and opening up the gates towards living a more authentic life.
My Background and Approach
In therapy, I pull from a mixture of different therapy modalities- with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, attachment theory and Mindfulness. I take a holistic approach in empowering the client to strive towards self-evolution and change. My goal in therapy is to help the client show up more authentically in their lives. Bottom Line: I know that if I am not real in my sessions that I can’t expect you to be either. I aim to show up authentically for all of my clients so that they can feel comfortable showing up authentically themselves. Therapy is a collaboration and I hope to create an open yet challenging environment that best fosters growth and self-evolution.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I started Whitestar Wellness, S.C. because in my 10 years as being a social worker I noticed that there was something lacking from a lot of traditional mental health care- the focus on connection and authenticity over labels. While diagnoses and therapy modalities certainly serve their purposes, I have always been passionate about making sure whoever I am in the room with feels like they are treated as an equal and a unique individual.
