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

In our first sessions together, we will start with brief introductions then dive into what brings you to treatment. We will then discuss your experiences across your lifespan. This will help me create a tailored treatment plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I take an eclectic, person-centered approach using techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed therapy, multicultural therapy, and solution-focused therapy working with individuals.

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

I primarily employ a cognitive-behavioral treatment approach, helping clients to identify and challenge those distortions in their thinking that interfere with achieving a sense of well-being in their lives.
