Presenting problems are often alike, but no two people are, nor are the ways people approach their difficulties. With that said, I have experience with a theme of problems, but I approach solutions with the individual in mind. I don’t tackle someone’s problem with a one-size-fits-all approach, but get to know my clients as unique people. I attempt to obtain a complete picture including strengths, limitations, background, fears, insecurities and experiences that will help me tailor a solution to the problem. Using these methods has helped me provide better therapy in San Diego for all of my clients. Below are a list of problems I’m comfortable and experienced working with.
My philosophy and therapy techniques do not draw from an illness model, but a strength based model. I believe we all have the inherent tools and abilities to thrive and be happy. Life is sometimes hard, but we don’t have to be taken down by what life brings. Learning to effectively process the painful feelings is just as important as being able to fully experience the “good” feelings. By exploring and accepting our complete range of emotions, we stop resisting who we are. Shame and fear begin to subside while confidence and relief begin to emerge. The benefits of individual therapy helps with well being and couples counseling gives great insight to what causes issues. No person is broken or needs to be fixed, but only rediscovered.
