Our Philosophy

We believe in: 

  • Collaboration with the client: the client is the pilot, and I am the co-pilot, working collaboratively to effect a positive change in the presenting problem.
  • Providing a safe and supportive environment where the client will feel safe and understood.
  • Healthy and warm therapeutic rapport with the client. I enjoy building a relationship of mutual respect with my clients, where they feel comfortable in my therapy sessions.
  • Cultural humility and competence, where the client and I are open to learning and understanding the different cultures presented in the psychotherapy sessions.

A Love Note

Rita has helped me through many a tough time in my life. Based on my personal experience with her, I would say she makes it her priority to understand the personality of her client, while she educates herself on the situation her client is facing. She uses this knowledge to assist her clients overcome the issue(s) by empowering them with tools to navigate their specific situation/s and building their confidence at a critical juncture in their life. Rita helps me see light (positive in life) when I am amidst turmoil and chaos. On a more personal note, I will say “she straightens me out and helps me breathe” when I am feeling overwhelmed. I can easily testify to the fact that Rita is a thorough professional with a humane heart.
