There are certain stigmas, biases, and stereotypes associated with diagnoses and traumas that people in society contend with every day. I understand that these traumas and diagnoses are not something that you choose in your life but are something that happens to you. Or is a diagnosis that you must learn to live with. Nor do they define you. As such, I don't conduct my therapy with these stigmas, biases, and stereotypes in any way the way society can sometimes put them at the forefront. They're an unhealthy addition to therapy for something that a person does not choose for themselves.
Success in therapy with me doesn't look the same as with other counselors nor does it look the same for every person. It's not a one size fits all approach. Success is very individualized when it comes to therapy with each person and is measured differently. The way that I approach this is by giving you no more than you can handle at once. I also give you individual benchmarks by which you can measure progress. Slowly this opens up the bigger picture little by little, which starts with recognizing what the issues are, to begin with. If you cannot start with recognizing the issues and then the 'why', then you can never make any progress and succeed in therapy and life. This is the start to changing your thinking that changes your actions.
Because I come from a different cultural background, I'm very patient and understanding. I'm also very respectful and persistent. I'm a Veteran, which the military is a melting pot of cultures. I'm more culturally competent due to my own life experiences being from another country and from my time in the military, and the exposure to all the cultures there. It gives me a unique perspective and life experience that most do not have, which assists in my approach to therapy.

As a Veteran, I understand the experiences that are part of daily living while in the military. When PTSD becomes part of daily living after that stage of life ends, I can help you learn to manage it. I will help you find therapeutic tools and techniques that help you as an individual when it becomes overwhelming so that you can get back to a normal life. I can help you learn healthy coping skills when you're feeling stressed or having negative thoughts. As the anxiety, insomnia, anger, and urge to self-medicate comes creeping in, I'll be there with you every step of the way.
