I have been in the counseling field for over ten years. My life experience along with my education and training have been vital in helping me connect with my clients. I believe that the client/therapist relationship is crucial to successful outcomes, therefore, I consider my alliance with my clients as one of the most important aspects of therapy. I take a relational, collaborative, non-judgemental approach, encouraging my clients to take ownership in their healing, while at the same time, guiding and supporting them along the way. I empathize with their struggles and use evidence-based treatments such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, Mindfulness, and Sandtry among other strategies to help my clients overcome their issues.
