About My Clients

I have a profound desire to make a difference in the lives of those who have experienced trauma. Trauma, whether emotional, physical, or psychological, can leave deep scars that affect every aspect of one's life. I provide a safe and nurturing space where they can explore their past experiences, express their emotions, and build the tools needed for distress tolerance and emotional regulation. I prioritize creating a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their trauma.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic approach combines evidence-based modalities tailored to each individual's unique needs. I believe in the power of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help adolescents reframe negative thought patterns and behaviors, guiding them towards more positive and constructive choices. Additionally, I draw from various trauma-focused therapies to assist adults in their journey to recovery and enhance distress tolerance and emotional regulation. As a therapist, I consider myself a partner on the journey of self-discovery and healing. I view each client as a unique individual with their strengths and potential for growth.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a dedicated therapist, deeply committed to facilitating healing and personal growth in individuals facing unique challenges. With a focus on adults carrying the weight of trauma history and adolescents navigating behavioral issues, I've cultivated a therapeutic approach that's compassionate, evidence-based, and rooted in the belief that every person has the potential for transformation.
