My generalist training means that I have the knowledge, skills and abilities to work across a wide range of psychological issues - depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship stress, low self-esteem, career troubles and family issues. I have specific expertise with social anxiety, OCD, traumatic experiences, and alcohol/drug use. I am particularly attuned to working with both first and second generation immigrants and those balancing multiple cultural identities.
I have years of specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy, and I integrate those skills with methods of Motivational Interviewing to help clients feel motivated to use behavioral change strategies to help them reach their goals. Finally, I consider it important to highlight people's strengths (Strength-Based Therapy) while helping them identify solutions to current problems (Solution Focused Brief Therapy).
