Commitment to Patient-Centered Care
“I believe that establishing a relationship based on safety and trust is essential for therapy to be truly effective. My framework for conceptualizing psychological distress is firmly based in Trauma Informed practice, holding in mind that uncomfortable or distressing emotions, thoughts, or sensations are often normal adaptations to stressful or traumatic life experiences. Asking the question ‘what happened to you’ rather than ‘what’s wrong with you’ affords us an opportunity to contextualize and make sense of whatever the presenting problem is that might be interfering with your overall quality of life. One of my intentions in therapy is to destigmatize and normalize areas of difficulty utilizing an accessible neurobiological approach that helps clarify that symptoms are not just ‘in your head’, but literally part of a whole body and brain feedback loop. In my experience, this takes some of the mystery out of how symptoms manifest, and makes the talking part of therapy significantly more effective.”
