Profile
“Services are provided in a safe, nonjudgmental, and culturally-sensitive environment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Becoming a therapist was my first career choice; I have always been interested in helping others. As a young adult, I was intrigued with the why of things, human behavior, and finding solutions to problems. I am a great listener and can engage with diverse groups of people. I have worked in several settings, including private practice, intensive, community, public schools, an outpatient behavioral health clinic, and a partial hospitalization program for chronically mentally ill clients. I have completed training in anxiety disorders, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, depression, ADHD, clinical supervision, sexual abuse, immigration evaluations, and cultural competency. My work experience and training have provided me with a solid clinical background and increased skills when working with a diverse population.
What should someone know about working with you?
Services are provided in a safe, nonjudgmental, and culturally-sensitive environment. The intake process involves completing a questionnaire to obtain background history, exploring treatment goals and objectives, and developing a treatment plan that I review with clients during the first couple of sessions. Throughout the course of treatment, clients learn effective strategies to cope with their challenges. When needed, homework is assigned to encourage clients to implement strategies in real-life situations. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in several areas of professional development, including workshops, webinars, and online courses. I am interested in learning more about bipolar disorder and narcissistic personality disorder. Collaboration with other providers benefits my clients by helping me provide comprehensive care.
