You’ve taken the most important step towards healing and feeling better and that is reaching out for help. My goal is to empower individuals to overcome personal obstacles and barriers they are struggling with by using their strengths.
As a therapist, I believe collaborative work is truly important and you can expect tasks to focus on between sessions. I aim to make the therapeutic process feel accepting, genuine, positive, interactive, and trusting. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches that include CBT, DBT, incorporation of meditation, mindfulness, assertiveness training, and mood management, as well as providing active listening, empathy and support throughout their healing journey.
