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

The first session will focus on rapport building, gathering information about the challenges the individual is experiencing, and the desired goals one plan to achieve.

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

I am compassionate, understanding, a good listener, empathetic, supportive and nonjudgmental. I accept clients where she or he is currently at in life. I look forward to the opportunity to helping you achieve your personal goals.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I am compassionate about using CBT with my clients because change starts with your thoughts which reflects how one feels and act.


I prefer to use an eclectic treatment modality to help my clients work through life challenges.
