Profile
“I enjoy listening to people, making meaningful connections, and assisting individuals in discovering their purpose through healing.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
This is my first career; being a therapist is my passion and what I was born to do. I enjoy listening to people, making meaningful connections, and assisting individuals in discovering their purpose through healing. I have worked in foster care agencies and community-based mental health facilities. Working in community-based mental health facilities has helped me be more aware of diversity, stigma, and gentrification. I am trained in CBT, motivational interviewing, and DBT. Learning about complex trauma has been most impactful on my approach to healing.
What should someone know about working with you?
I use a person-centered approach in the initial session to get to know my clients, their schemes, their narrative, and their inner struggles. I assign homework from time to time to aid my clients in their self-discovery and healing. I enjoy working with young children, adolescents, young adults, and adults.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My upbringing has helped me understand that life is made of thorns and thistles, but any situation can be changed with the right guidance and support. I am aware of nuances, diversity, and stigma associated with mental illness based on culture and ethnicity. I enjoy learning about different cultures, subcultures, and diversity. Traveling has also broadened my scope of the world.
