Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) trained in the CBT model and equipped with over 10 years of experience working with Adults and Adolescents.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing emphasizes collaboration between the therapist and client, with the therapist serving as a guide rather than an authority figure. I work collaboratively with my clients to explore their ambivalence, strengths, and values, fostering a supportive and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. I respect my clients' autonomy and choices, providing them with the support, information, and skills they need to make informed decisions and pursue their goals. I adopt a strengths-based perspective in motivational interviewing, focusing on my clients' strengths, resilience, and past successes as sources of motivation and empowerment. By highlighting their strengths and capabilities, I help clients build confidence in their ability to overcome challenges and achieve their goals.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

SFBT is highly goal-oriented, focusing on concrete, achievable goals that clients can work towards. I collaborate with my clients to identify their desired outcomes and develop actionable steps to move closer to their goals. This approach aligns with the values of empowerment and self-determination. I recognize the importance of cultural competence in therapy and strive to integrate culturally relevant examples, metaphors, and language into SFBT techniques. By acknowledging and affirming my clients' cultural identities and experiences, I create a safe and validating therapeutic environment where they feel understood and respected.Central to SFBT is the validation and affirmation of clients' efforts and progress. I celebrate my clients' successes, no matter how small, and acknowledge their resilience and perseverance in the face of challenges. This validation is particularly important for clients from marginalized communities who may have experienced systemic oppression and discrimination.

Culturally Sensitive Therapy

I strive to create a therapeutic environment where clients feel seen, heard, and validated in their cultural identities and experiences. This involves actively listening, empathizing, and validating clients' feelings and perspectives without judgment. I recognize that individuals hold multiple identities that intersect and influence their experiences, such as race, gender, sexuality, and socio-economic status. I incorporate an intersectional lens into therapy to address the complex interactions between these identities and their impact on mental health. I incorporate culturally relevant interventions and techniques into therapy sessions that resonate with my clients' cultural backgrounds and values. This may include storytelling, ritual and ceremony, mindfulness practices rooted in traditions, and exploring cultural strengths and resilience. I view therapy as a collaborative process where clients are active participants in their healing journey. I empower clients to identify their goals, strengths, and cultural resources while providing support, guidance, and encouragement along the way.
