Your decision to begin therapy is an important one, one that is powerful and one that I will be honored to be a part of whether you are struggling with relationships problems, coping with a difficult time in life, grief or simply wanting to make some life changes. My goal as your therapist is to help you become EMPOWERED in your life, to help you learn how to utilize your own power to make concrete changes, to improve the areas in your life that have created obstacles or to help you manage a difficult time. You are the expert in your life and as your psychotherapist I work to help you learn how to find your strengths. I offer compassionate, progressive and culturally affirming couples and individual counseling in the heart of Old Town Pasadena, CA.
I do not just sit and stare at you for fifty minutes asking you questions about your past, believe me, the past is important but I believe it is important to work with you as a teammate rather than simply putting you into a box with diagnostic labels. I draw on my experience of many years in psychotherapuetic practice working with individuals, couples and families. I use an eclectic use of modalities from feminist theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, psycho dynamic theories, and mindfulness techniques. These psychological techniques enable me to help you learn how to change your thinking patterns, resolve conflicts from your past that are negatively affecting your present, help you develop skills that will help you better your communication, decrease negative feelings and make better life choices.
I offer you my undivided attention in an office that is comfortable and provides you with complete privacy. So whether you are new to therapy or have been in therapy in the past I can work with you to help you in the here and now. I am always open to questions about the therapy process so feel free to contact me, you can call me at (323) 841- 9950, email me: email@example.com or schedule your first free consultation online: http://www.schedulicity.com/Scheduling/Default.aspx?business=MLLNKY
