I enjoy helping individuals identify what matters most to them in life, set meaningful goals, and address obstacles in their path. My approach is strengths-oriented, and I seek first to know the many ways clients already work on their wellness. I partner with my clients to help them better manage the symptoms and situations that brought them to therapy. This is grounded in building a deeper understanding of one's thoughts, feelings, and core beliefs. My therapeutic style is collaborative, warm, genuine, and supportive. I love getting feedback - if something isn't working, let's make a change! It is important to me to consider how a person is situated in their environment; how they are shaped by family, community, culture. This helps identify factors that have contributed to challenges and ways to cope that are grounded in real experience. I believe in "homework" and practice between sessions to make sure therapy is meaningful and effective.
