I finished a pre-medicine curriculum and a Masters in Counseling and Guidance. I also have a Masters in Industrial Organizational Psychology. Having recovered from my own health issues, I understand the effects of physical health on emotional well-being. I work with clients to try and provide strategies for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. As a certified mental health integrative medicine provider, I understand the physiological processes that affect mental and emotional wellness. However, I am not limited by the constraints of an allopathic approach. I believe in utilizing both pharmaceutical and natural interventions to promote wellness. Furthermore, I believe that the mind has the power to heal pain. I try to help clients identify and shift cognitive distortions to help them maintain realistic expectations. While presently focused, one can face stressors head-on, not in an avoidant stance. Therefore, being presently focused is crucial to my work.
