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

During our initial session, we will take the time to become acquainted with each other. I will pose several questions to you to gain a better understanding of the challenges you’re facing and the steps you’ve taken to address them. Together, we will establish goals to focus on in subsequent sessions.

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

My foremost strength as a therapist lies in aiding individuals to recognize their own potential. I am here to support you; facilitate your self-exploration and help you grow into the life you desire. Your time is precious, so I want to use your sessions in a way that will most effectively meet your needs and address the concerns you have. As your counselor and confidant, I am ready to listen and support you.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I employ a diverse approach to identify the most beneficial therapy. I have successfully aided hundreds of individuals in breaking the cycle of anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. Through the use of CBT, they acquire stress management skills, gain insights into their triggers, and learn to control their thoughts.


For the past 7 years, I have incorporated EMDR into my practice. This has enabled me to assist individuals in processing traumatic experiences, leading to a gradual alleviation of their symptoms. A majority of my clients have reported an enhancement in their mood and an increased capacity to find joy in life.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

I received formal training and certification in DBT treatment in 2022. My methods have been extensively applied in rehabilitation centers and community mental health clinics.


I employ a strength-based approach in my practice. The primary focus is to help clients acquire skills to manage various issues and to recognize their own strengths as a crucial element in their treatment process.

Compassion Focused

I integrate a harm reduction approach for addiction treatment that focuses on reducing negative consequences rather than the standard focus on abstinence, and empowers clients to make positive changes at their own pace.
