Dominique has over 10 years’ experience working as a psychotherapist, clinical case manager and crisis counselor with adults and couples struggling with emotional difficulties such as; depression, anxiety, psychosis, trauma, compulsive behaviors, addiction, low self-esteem, substance abuse, life crisis, grief and loss, infertility and relationship problems. Dominique has extensive experience working cross-culturally through her work within the San Francisco Community Mental Health System and San Francisco General Hospital, where she worked with clients from all over the world.
Dominique provides individual psychotherapy and couples counseling to clients seeking to improve the quality of their lives and relationships and counsels individuals and couples struggling with infertility issues, recognizing the often traumatic experience accompanying the complex process of navigating Artificial Reproductive Technology (ART), as well as the challenge to one’s core sense of self that can occur when building a family is no longer a private and easily attained goal.
“I strive to ensure that my clients are clear about what they are learning and gaining from psychotherapy. This includes the identification of supportive tools and coping skills that continue to aid clients after the completion of therapy. My style is collaborative, interactive and supportive. The methods I use are determined by the issues the client is working on, and include, but are not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Self Psychology.”
Dominique has traveled extensively and lived in three countries outside of the U.S. and values diversity, cultural integrity and sensitivity.
