About My Clients
My clients are highly motivated, intelligent, and appreciate a direct approach. Typically they have a history of trauma. I also provide support to parents and graduate students.
My Background and Approach
I use three approaches to counseling: a Cognitive Behavioral approach, an Existential-Humanistic approach, and a mind-body focused therapy called Brainspotting. This means that during sessions we will focus on your perceptions and personal beliefs that contribute to challenges, as well as the things that give your life meaning and purpose. We can also target emotions and memories stored in the body and mind to support your own self-regulation.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that therapy is a life changing tool that should be within reach financially. Therapy can be fun and intense and should lead to a greater personal understanding, personal acceptance, and personal freedom. As a personal of color, it is important to me to work with clients of color. I strongly believe in assessing progress to ensure the work is effective and worth while for the client.
