My work as a couple's therapist is focused on first observing what is the current situation and how the conflict is happening in order to choose appropriate interventions that will focus on achieving their goals and address their current problems. I stay attentive to communication skills, conflict resolution skills and level of emotional intimacy to see what needs to be addressed and how. I help couples address underlying issues of their problems in order to achieve permanent healing.
When I work with burned out professionals, I focus on exploring their internal and external demands to see what is being internalized to increase responsibility. My techniques focus on self awareness so my client can explore as deep as they need to in order to become aware what else this might be triggering. I also focus on exploring possibly neglected inner needs that caused burn out and redirect them to increase motivation and refocus on those needs.
In my expertise in Gestalt Therapy, I focus on helping my clients explore their entire experience, starting from focusing on self-awareness by identifying what is happening and how it is happening to them. My techniques focus on inner world and help my clients make contact with emotions, feelings and neglected needs that keep them in a constant state of imbalance. Personal growth is my goal with clients as I stay focused on their experience, awareness and acceptance to achieve permanent healing.
Couple's counseling is focused on addressing the conflicting situation that brings the couple to therapy. Starting from observing how the dynamic works, to pay attention to communication styles and problems with connection, our interventions are focused on facilitating better conflict resolutions skills, provide healing as a couple and increase emotional intimacy by reconnecting partners.
When implementing existential therapy, I focus on seeing my clients as a whole and explore self-purpose by exploring and accepting strengths and limitations. Counseling is a collaborative process where the client continues to give meaning to their existence to identify and accept their purpose.
My work addressing anxiety disorder with adults focuses on exploring signs, symptoms and helping my client become aware of their "experience" by assisting them to make connections to understand what is happening and most importantly how it is happening. My interventions focus on self-awareness and allow me to explore for underlying causes of anxiety in order to achieve permanent healing rather than staying on the surface of problems.
