My Approach

“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?”

Carl R. Rogers

“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

I believe in blending the best from Eastern Philosophy of creating meaning in life and Western approaches of changing the way you think and behave. I strongly believe in the humanistic approach, which emphasize on therapeutic relationship and I strive to be a non-judgmental and empathic therapist.

In terms of therapeutic techniques, I follow an Eclectic approach, which is a combination of principles taken from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Zen Philosophy, Mindfulness, Existential Therapy and Acceptance.

In psychotherapy, “one size does NOT fit all” and it’s of paramount importance that treatment should be individualized to each client. Thus, my focus is to spend some time in understanding not only the presenting issues, but all other factors that may have contributed to its development or might be maintaining it. The pace and goals of therapy are collaboratively decided with the client based on their comfort level. I believe that each individual has the capacity to reach their potential and make effective decisions, therefore I act a facilitator to help clients reach there.
