I began my journey to becoming a therapist almost a decade ago, when I realized my previous career in healthcare management was not aligned with my passions and purpose in life. I found myself running businesses for other people who were focused on profits and growth, but lacking a focus on people and connection, which is where my heart finds fulfillment. It was then I decided to change my career path and further my knowledge in the human experience. With the goal of learning how to connect with others in a meaningful way that can lead to growth and healing, I pursued my education and licensure as a clinical mental health counselor.
I ascribe to a person-centered approach and incorporate techniques customized for the individual, using the following evidence based modalities:
• Cognitive behavioral therapy
• Compassion Focused Therapy
• Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
• Narrative Therapy
• Dialectic Behavioral Therapy
• Motivational Interviewing
