Profile
“I like to tell my clients progress is a process, a process that is nonlinear and looks different for everyone.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My own challenges with mental health along with the stigma within my community and cultural background were huge motivations and factors that encouraged me to pursue becoming a mental health professional. I felt it was important for me to help break the cycle of stigma. This is also what makes me the therapist I am today. My relatability, authenticity, and experience in different settings, such as community mental health and substance use with diverse populations, help me connect with a wide range of people.
What should someone know about working with you?
During the first session, we will get to know each other and identify goals for therapy. I like to tell my clients progress is a process, a process that is nonlinear and looks different for everyone. My ideal client is motivated to change and prepared to do the work, as this is an essential factor in experiencing and achieving goals.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am committed and highly motivated to continue my education and learn new things to help my clients. My goal is to become trained in a variety of evidence-based treatments that are effective in treating adult trauma, depression, and anxiety.
