I believe that we all have the power to create change in our lives by allowing ourselves to see ourselves and be seen by others in our lives. Together, we will explore the origins of your patterns of thinking/behaving/relating, as well as the functions that these patterns serve, assess your barriers to change, identify your strengths and resources, and practice new ways of coping in order to help you live a more satisfying life.
To assist clients in their process, I uses a relational, client-centered approach with a multicultural and social justice lens. I use warmth, humor, and authenticity to build relationships with my clients, which allows them to practice engaging in new patterns in a therapeutic environment. Additionally, I strive to collaboratively identify clients' strengths and come up with strategies to help clients overcome difficulties and to live a fuller, more meaningful life. I want to identify strategies that are sustainable and feasible for you to use in daily life.
