I aim to collaborate with you to achieve your goals and bring about positive change. I specialize in helping individuals gain insights into their challenges and provide therapeutic solutions for a better life. Think of me as an architect, working with you to redesign your life's blueprint, helping you transition from just surviving to thriving. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, depression, anger, substance abuse, life transitions, or self-esteem issues, you deserve a supportive space to heal and grow. Together, we’ll embark on a journey of self-discovery, harnessing your innate strengths, facing realities, and setting a path toward your dreams. Let’s start this transformative journey together!

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

The initial session, or intake session, sets the stage for expectations and begins the process of building trust. It prioritizes the client's voice, focusing on reasons for seeking therapy and goal setting. The therapist introduces their therapeutic approach and outlines what future sessions may entail. This session includes an assessment covering mental health symptoms, current stressors, and personal history to customize a treatment plan. It's a time for rapport-building, encouraging questions to ensure a comfortable match, and setting the foundation for a supportive, understanding connection. Individuals are encouraged to share their stories marking the start of their journey toward healing and growth in a supportive environment. The aim in this first session is to establish a connection where you feel heard and understood.

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

My strengths include a versatile approach, utilizing multiple therapies like CBT, SFBT, ACT, MI, and Narrative Therapy, tailored to individual client needs. I focus on strength-based, solution-focused care, empowering my clients to actively participate in their recovery. I offer comprehensive support for various issues including anxiety, depression, personal growth, and addiction. Techniques such as mindfulness and psychoeducation enhance resilience and self-awareness, providing my clients with effective coping strategies for improved mental health outcomes. This integrated and adaptive approach ensures effective management of diverse psychological challenges.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

This therapy is highly versatile and effective for treating a variety of issues including addiction, anger management, depression, anxiety, and stress management. CBT helps clients identify and challenge distorted thinking patterns and replace them with more realistic and effective thoughts, thereby decreasing emotional distress and self-defeating behavior.

Motivational Interviewing

Effective in addiction and anger management contexts, MI is a client-centered therapy that enhances an individual's motivation to change by helping them explore and resolve ambivalence. It is particularly useful for engaging clients who are unsure about initiating change or who feel conflicted about their ability to succeed.

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

This form of therapy uses strategies of acceptance and mindfulness, mixed with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. It’s particularly helpful for clients dealing with self-esteem issues, self-doubt, and feelings of inadequacy, as it teaches them how to accept their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting against them.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

Ideal for clients transitioning to new life phases or dealing with relationship and family conflicts, SFBT focuses on what clients want to achieve through therapy rather than dwelling on past problems. This modality encourages clients to envision their future and helps them identify the strengths and resources they already possess to make that vision a reality.

Narrative

This therapy centers on the stories that individuals construct and live by. It can be especially powerful for those dealing with self-esteem issues, family conflict, and transitions in life. Narrative therapy helps clients to identify their values and the skills associated with them in their story, and to use these narratives to address problems in their lives.
