About My Clients
In my practice, I embrace diversity. I strive to provide the best possible care for every one of my clients. I look forward to meeting individuals on their level, walking their path along with them, helping them discover the person they want to be, and fostering their evolution to that state of being. The majority of my clients come to me to work through challenges with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss, life transitions, and social isolation.
My Background and Approach
By utilizing techniques in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), I combine logic, intuition, creativity, and empathy to reflect my unique approach, based in humanism, holism, and existentialism, and assist with achievement of therapeutic goals. I help with challenges such as developing behavioral and emotional self-awareness, learning, and implementing adaptive responses to stressors, building effective interpersonal skills, establishing healthy expectations and boundaries, and instilling a sense of empowerment and resilience. For over eight years, I have worked in both inpatient psych and outpatient BH settings with people from various backgrounds and dynamic situations. Now, I am a licensed professional counselor and art therapist, certified in administration of the mandala assessment research instrument (MARI) and trained in eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
