About My Clients

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship hardships, trauma impact, feeling uncertain or just wanting to feel heard, you are not alone and there are people willing to listen. Through understanding, compassion and personalized treatment plans, we can work together to modify thoughts and behaviors in order to increase confidence, gratitude, positivity and enhance your quality of life.

My Background and Approach

Therapy allows for you to be in control of your own mental health. Choosing your own therapist, choosing how much work and effort you dedicate to the process and choosing which techniques work for you. As your therapist, it is my job to understand and level with your current life stressors and work collaboratively to find a variety of solutions. The approaches I use most often and integrate into treatment are mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic theory, holistic approach and trauma based treatment. Overall, my goal is to provide you with a safe and empowering environment to explore, grow and unleash your inner potential to be the best version of you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Going through a pandemic, I think a lot of people are finally understanding how important mental health is. This testing time forced us to slow down and reflect upon what and who we have in our lives and shift priorities. This hasn’t been an easy adjustment for everyone but it’s never too late to start working on your happiness. The hardest part about being a mental health advocate is understanding and listening to the continuous negative stigmas that people still have about someone who is struggling and seeks help. Choosing to work on your mental health should not be viewed as a weakness but rather as a strength because it takes a strong person to want to confront and work towards moving past the challenges you face. The power is yours.
