About My Clients
Are you feeling lost, alone, stuck, or like daily life is harder than it used to be? Is life or your relationships not as fulling as before? I am here to help! Because we are all so unique, there is not a standardized way to offer therapy, therefore I utilize an eclectic approach to meet your individual needs and help you accomplish your personal goals. I work with adults, adolescents, and families struggling with anxiety, trauma, depression, and relationship/ communication issues. Let's chat!
My Background and Approach
I utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach by exploring how our experiences throughout our lives impact the way we view and think about ourselves, others, and the world. By looking at our thoughts, and how they develop, we can achieve a better understanding of how our thoughts impact our behavior (or lack of behavior), as well as our relationships with ourselves and others. I work with individuals who are open to exploring their mind, and then work to re-create new, more prospective, and healthy ways of thinking, which in turn will create healthier behaviors and hopefully healthier relationships. I provide my clients with the tools and techniques necessary to empower themselves in creating the change they wish to see in themselves and their lives.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that everyone has the capability to live the exact life that they desire for themselves. Life ebbs and flows, but change and growth can happen at any time, as long as we are open and willing to work on it. I believe every single one of us (two or four legged) deserve to love and be loved- so much so that I rescued my blind pup (Ghost) from a kill shelter right before his days ran out. He is now living his best life and you might even catch a glimpse of him in the background of our sessions. I also believe that the Dodgers are and will forever be the best team in baseball, but I will still accept you even if you don't share the same beliefs. I practice a lifestyle of love and acceptance by practicing a plant-based lifestyle and supporting the LGTBQ community and the Black Lives Matters movement.
