“By creating a comfortable, judgment-free, and safe space, people can be open, honest, kind, and more compassionate with themselves.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always been fascinated with the human mind and behavior. Being exposed to mental illness in my family instilled in me the desire to learn more and gain the ability to help people who suffer from various mental illness disorders. I'm also an empathetic, compassionate, and intuitive person. Very early on, I knew I wanted to be in the field of helping professions and work with people from various backgrounds. I'm very well-informed about the collective trauma that we are undergoing at this time. I strive to always be present, understanding, and adaptable when it comes to providing clinical therapy services. I treat every client as unique as they are.
What should someone know about working with you?
By creating a warm, trusting, and welcoming environment, I am dedicated to providing a space for my clients to build and improve their self-esteem, correct emotional regulation difficulties, and promote better self-awareness. I help my clients strengthen and nourish their relationships, recognize personal values and goals, and align themselves and their actions with these values. My priority is attuning to my clients’ needs and meeting them where they are.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I constantly participate in webinars and seek professional development opportunities to become a more knowledgeable therapist.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Telehealth is accessible, easy to use, and offers services in the comfort of your home. And it does this without the hassle and financial burden of commuting to a clinician's office.
What is your approach in therapy?
I use a combination of methods for a more person-centered, attachment-based, solution-focused, and holistic therapy experience that fosters personal growth, self-exploration, and positive therapeutic outcomes. By creating a comfortable, judgment-free, and safe space, people can be open, honest, kind, and more compassionate with themselves. In therapy, I utilize a variety of methods that are most helpful and supportive for my clients. I am also interested in understanding the mind-body connection. Therefore, I regularly incorporate mindfulness exercises and positive psychology techniques in my practice to help clients reach their full potential, recognize their strengths, and reduce reactivity and irritability.
