I like to apply a systematic approach in therapy. This means I look for the impact of the issues in different areas in a person’s life, their relationship with others, and with their environment. I value the collaboration as well as the openness in communication through the process. I view therapy as a journey, and I am the tour guide for whoever is taking the trip. As a guide, I provide information and professional feedback to those who want to travel but the client is the one who decides the destination.
My goal for supervision is to help supervisees to develop their style of therapy and become comfortable with the identity. An area that I focus on in supervision is the self as the therapist. I believe that exploring our own values and biases will help us to be more efficient as providers to people we work with.
As a marriage and family therapist, my primary interest is to work with relational issues, such as romantic relationship, family relationship and friendship etc. I am also interested in working with individuals who feels lost during the transition in/or out of college.
