My career has varied and been comprehensive over the past 18 years. During my time, I have worked with diverse populations and developed expertise in various treatment modalities. Using evidence-based practices, I utilize distinct, culturally-appropriate, multidimensional interventions based on client needs and goals. Clients have described me as compassionate, motivating, caring, committed and displaying a sense of humor, while being challenging, direct and honest throughout the process. Having a positive therapeutic experience starts with a trusting relationship. By giving clients my undivided attention, education, guidance, empathy and empowerment, I create a supportive, safe, non-judgmental space where they can process emotions and experience interpersonal changes in their journey of healing and growth. My approach is to motivate and challenge my client’s potential so that through hard work and self-determination they can achieve the level of success and happiness they deserve.
