People seek the help of a psychotherapist when they are in distress or emotional pain. We are all faced with various degrees of stress throughout our life and we handle these in various ways. Sometimes we are more successful with it, sometimes less so. The role of psychotherapy is to help the person through these hardships in life and potentially help them gain something useful from the experience rather than just surviving it.
My approach to psychotherapy comes from the psychodynamic orientation and I bring in my own style, my previous experiences and understanding of human behaviors.
I work with people on their anxieties and worries that manifest in many areas of their life – mental, emotional, or physical complaints. These layers all influence each other and long lasting relief will come if we explore the underlying cause to the turmoil on all levels. For those with family issues, we also explore family dynamics – parents with extra stresses to their own career and personal growth, and adolescents finding their own individual expression. Working with a holistic approach is satisfying for the individual and provides interpersonal relief. My approach to therapy is psychodynamic, being curious about effective and meaningful ways to heal one's painful experiences while also looking for ways to open up more space for meaning and creativity in one's life. I take pride in creating a safe space so these explorations could emerge.
