What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, you can expect a warm and welcoming environment where we'll begin by introducing ourselves and establishing a comfortable rapport. We'll delve into a series of conversations aimed at understanding your unique life experiences, challenges, and the reasons behind your decision to seek therapy. I'll take the time to listen attentively and empathetically as you share your thoughts and feelings. During this session, I'll also provide an overview of my therapeutic approach, emphasizing the incorporation of holistic and somatic practices to support your journey towards healing and growth. We'll discuss how these techniques can complement traditional talk therapy by addressing not only your thoughts and emotions but also the connection between your mind, body, and spirit. Together, we'll explore how these practices can assist you in achieving your therapeutic goals and navigating the challenges you may be facing. Overall, my aim for our first session is to create a safe and collaborative space where you feel heard, understood, and supported as we embark on this journey of self-discovery and transformation together.

My treatment methods

Mind-body approach

The mind-body approach to mental health therapy emphasizes the interconnectedness of psychological and physical well-being. It recognizes that mental and emotional states can profoundly impact physical health, and vice versa. Therapy using this approach often integrates techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and biofeedback to promote holistic healing, addressing both the mental and physical aspects of a person's experience. By fostering awareness and balance between mind and body, this approach aims to enhance overall wellness and resilience in individuals facing mental health challenges.
