My Background and Approach

In my approach, I utilize behavioral techniques to educate, process, and challenge barriers hindering your progress. Recognizing and reframing negative thought patterns is key, and I emphasize the effectiveness of dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy throughout my career. Balancing validation with motivational interviewing, I create structured sessions, ensuring a clear roadmap for our work together. Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, anger, safety concerns, or interpersonal conflicts, my goal is to help you navigate these challenges and achieve positive change. I invite you to reach out for a free consultation, where we can discuss how my therapeutic approach aligns with your needs. I'm here to answer any questions you may have about the services I offer. Let's embark on this journey of growth and well-being together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I deeply believe in fostering personal autonomy, allowing individuals to lead sessions with their unique goals and values. My strengths-based approach highlights positive qualities, serving as a catalyst for growth. Creating a positive, validating, nonjudgmental, and supportive environment is paramount for a successful therapeutic relationship and overall change. Open dialogue is a cornerstone in our work, addressing any challenges that may arise within our relationship. This transparency enhances the effectiveness of our therapeutic journey. Additionally, I actively recognize and advocate for underprivileged/underserved populations, with a special focus on BIPOC and LGBTQI+ communities. Acknowledging the role of privilege, both professionally and personally, is an integral part of my commitment. By actively challenging privilege, I aim to ensure an inclusive and equitable therapeutic space for all individuals. I invite you to explore this transformative journey with me.
