I believe that diversity is crucial for balance and the human condition is complex, so I have an integrative perspective on psychotherapy and mental health. With clinical training and experience with a variety of interventions, I combine components from different therapeutic approaches to give people a thorough conceptualization of their mental health and suggest various avenues for change. I look at the physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioural, interpersonal, social, cultural, and spiritual aspects of people's lives, in understanding their mental health and in helping them to create more fulfilling lives.
As a doctoral-level clinical psychologist with solid training and experience in the scientist-practitioner model, I firmly believe that evidence from research should inform my clinical practice. So I bring my integrative perspective on mental health to the journey of psychotherapy, integrating ideas and research with the experiences of the people I work with.
My hope is that every person who works with me truly experiences the process of therapy as their own. Towards this goal, I make every effort to understand where each person is and where they want to go. My goal is always to contribute to the alleviation of emotional distress and to foster emotional well-being and resilience. I draw from my own experience and from the wealth of ideas and research findings in various evolving areas of psychology to suggest to each client various routes to change
I have integrated various kinds of ideas and research into my personal and professional life. This is of course a work in progress, what I strive for...
