About Me

My focus is to meet my clients where they are currently in their lives and guide them along their therapeutic journey and bring them to where they desire to be. My therapeutic approach is a mixture of Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. Essentially I tailor my treatment approach to suit each individual's specific needs. I am passionate about helping individuals live, learn, and grow from and through their experiences and fill their toolbox with everything they need to manage their mental health throughout their life with self-assurance and confidence. 

 

I have worked with adolescents (ages 10-19), adults, and families in a private practice setting for 2 years and currently work with adolescents, adults, and elderly clients in a  behavioral clinic setting. I have experience working with an array of ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and religious/political views. 

I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.

The current therapy services I provide are virtual and in-person for adolescents, adults, and the elderly dealing with issues ranging from anxiety, depression, self-harm, stress, coping skills, and behavioral, emotional, and relational issues. I hope to be a lighthouse for those who may be experiencing difficulty navigating through their daily life.  I am here for you  "Today, Tomorrow, and the Future"
