My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that my role as a therapist is to facilitate positive change by working alongside my clients in a non-judgmental and supportive way. I practice various types of therapy, including CBT, DBT, humanistic, integrative, multicultural, existential and intergenerational family approaches. I have been working with an ethnically and culturally diverse population from all age groups, offering individual, couples, and family therapy.
