My Ideal Client

People whom I work with initially enter into therapy with challenges of battling the ambiguity and pervasiveness of negative or obsessive thoughts and memories, overwhelming anxiety, and difficulty managing compulsive behavior. With a willingness to commit to yourself and your well-being, you possess the primary force to create the change that you wish to gain in your life.

My Approach to Helping

My therapeutic practice is rooted in a humanistic approach, incorporating a client/person-centered focus and maintaining a therapeutic space that fosters empowerment and healing. My focus for individual and family therapy is maintaining a therapeutic environment that is safe, egalitarian, and of high cultural awareness. I value adhering to your personal goals for treatment, specific to your needs, as well as pulling from your own personal insights and experiences to build tools for a healthy life.
