About My Clients

I am open to working with clients of all backgrounds and age groups. I specialize in family-oriented services especially if it is in an individual counseling session or group session. From what I understand, remarkable psychological breakthroughs occur when we are open to change. I strongly believe that human beings are capable of change, even if it be one of the most difficult journeys we may endure.

My Background and Approach

As mental health professionals, we are equipped with the tools to help empower individuals for a chance to embrace their process and improve their quality of life. I am a strong believer in using a person's strengths to help empower their journey through life. I also believe that a person's background, culture, and identity have a profound impact on their perspective as well as how they perceive wellness. I believe in the holistic approach and overwell wellness. I use Existential Psychotherapy and Mindfulness to help my clients. I also borrow techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone has the power to make changes in their life by taking chances and making difficult choices. My thoughts on our nature align with the belief that we were born neutral. I strongly believe that our nature is influenced and changes with the course of time, within the institutions of family, friends, and, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I also believe that one’s personality is heavily influenced by the cultural and educational climate they grew up in. In my opinion, the only innate or inborn characteristics we acquire by birth are the animal ones. These include the need for nutrition, nourishment, and some sort of nurturing. Biological factors can also include genetic predispositions such as the risk for certain diseases. However, I believe that our personality and identity are developed throughout a lifetime, through the spaces we grew up around, the experiences we had there, and how we dealt with and conceptualize those experiences.
