Connect to Your Inner Wisdom
We become who we are through relationships, and new relationships help us grow.
The therapy relationship involves reconstructing personal experience, moving us closer to understanding and accepting all parts of ourselves, both “good” and “bad.”
From my perspective, that is the essence of mental health.
HOW THERAPY CAN HELP
My mission is to support clients in connecting to their intuition and inner wisdom. To me, that usually means awakening to the unconscious thoughts and feelings that guide our decisions and thematically organize our lives and relationships. With this knowledge, we can begin to let go of unsatisfying automatic patterns and venture to design a life that nourishes us, allowing ourselves to be guided not by fear or circumstance, but by our intuitive sense of what we desire.
Our relationship can also be a model for your relationships outside of therapy. Together we can explore how to manage conflict effectively, set healthy boundaries, and talk about things that make us uncomfortable. It’s my goal to help you understand what feels good to you in relationships and what doesn’t.
As a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Northeast Los Angeles, I use integrative treatment approaches tailored to the needs of my clients, combining open-ended psychodynamic approaches with more structured skills-based techniques as needed.
