Alejandra works primarily with a psychodynamic approach that she considers important for helping clients gain insight, a better understanding of themselves, and a better understanding on how their symptoms have manifested and impacted their life.
Alejandra believes that the therapist’s ability to listen to the patients, and to see their underlying issues is one of the most important aspects that contribute to the patients insight and growth in the therapeutic process.
She believes that patient’s symptoms can’t be seen and treated in isolation, and is always important to understand how and when the symptoms have emerged and developed in a persons’s life.
