Profile
“I grew up with a strong sense of social responsibility and am deeply passionate about social justice.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Supporting and helping others is a value I hold dear and one I’ve had from an early age. I grew up with a strong sense of social responsibility and am deeply passionate about social justice.
What should someone know about working with you?
In my practice, the first few sessions are a working interview and allow me to gather information concerning your present circumstances and your personal and family history. Thereafter, I work with clients to develop a plan for treatment. Upon agreement, we implement the course of treatment and monitor progress over time.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
As a therapist, I never profess to know it all or impose my beliefs onto others. My approach is to build self-awareness in others and aid in self-discovery or actualization while offering support in implementing what the self-actualized client desires as an outcome. It is not my desire to foster an outcome not desired by the client. I am merely a supportive voice, offering clients guidance to clarify circumstances and reach their desired goal.
