6 years of experience

Does the stress of managing your day-to-day life make you feel like you are in a tangled web? I can help. I have over 6 years of experience helping clients manage daily stressors and difficult situations. I specialize in working with teens and adults to manage both mental health and addiction problems. I have a strong belief in your ability to manage problems on your own, as you know yourself best. My role as your therapist would be to work with you in identifying those strengths in a non-judgmental space. If you need to work on anxiety, depression, parent-child relationship, addiction, anger management, ADHD, or trauma, I'm here to help.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

You have already taken the first step by being here, and I commend you for that. In our sessions, I will create a safe space to work on your goals in therapy and help you move forward. You will feel my passion for your success, and my confidence in your abilities and personal strengths for growth.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I use a variety of treatment methods depending on the client’s unique needs. One of the popular methods I use is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) where I will help you identify the connection between the thoughts, feelings, and actions that keep you feeling stuck. I also use solution-focused therapy to identify your personal strengths and use them to target your desired goals.

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

Generally, I enjoy working with clients from all populations from teens to adults. I, however, really enjoy working with teens and young adults. I believe this is because I have a lengthy experience working in the higher education environment. I am currently an adjunct instructor teaching students who aspire to become counselors. I enjoy working with the immigrant population as well.
