A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Personalized Attention for All Your Needs
I implement psychotherapeutic methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective as well as a cognitive behavioural approach
