About My Clients
The clients I work with have faced various adversities and challenges in their lives. Their struggles made them motivated to gain insight into their internal states and curious about the workings of their mind. I believe in each person’s unique ability and capacity for gaining insight and self-reflection to overcome their emotional struggles.
My Background and Approach
I've been working in the mental health field for several years and hold a MHC - LP. In practice, I consider personalities, histories and the different ways each person copes with their distress. I use a person-centered and evidence-based approaches to foster curiosity, safety and openness to growth. I'm also actively using Mentalization Based Treatment to help clients regulate their emotional and logical states of mind.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My core values stem from having grown up in multicultural environments in several countries. I developed an egalitarian view of the world as a result of my upbringing. I'm an ally of the LGBTQ community and support the Black Lives Matter movement. For fun I enjoy hiking, fishing, playing narrative driven video games and playing basketball.
