I utilize various components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Mindfulness techniques with a Psychodynamic approach.
My approach to therapy is empathic, collaborative, and unique to each individual's own needs. I believe the most important component of effective counseling is a genuine relational connection. I strive to create a therapeutic environment in which clients feel comfortable, respected, supported, and understood so that they may actively explore personal issues and experiment with new ways of thinking and behaving. Too often we spend our lives living either in the past or in the future, and consequently struggling with feelings of depression or anxiety.

Some of the evidence based modality that I integrate in my practice includes motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy, and EMDR.
My goal in therapy is to help clients feel empowered and assist in building emotional and mental stability. I approach with multicultural, strength based and trauma informed lens. I provide special insights on diversity issues and its co-relation with mental health. I also believe therapy should not have one mere focus on addressing mental health issues on a micro level but also needs to move beyond and understand the complexities of a person from the macro and mezzo level. I value therapeutic relationships and consider it to be a key factor in bringing the desired change for client. I welcome clients from all background.

The main modalities I utilize are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, and EMDR.
Are you tired of having people give you cliche quotes about thinking positive to solve your problems? Then I'm the therapist for you. Positive thinking is good and nice, but it does not bring back lost loved ones, curb addictions or make your anxiety disappear. Life is full of a wide array of emotions. Believing that we should only experience the "good" emotions is unrealistic and often leads to more suffering. My role is to help you figure out how to act according to your values in both the good times and the bad, instead of getting swept away in your emotions.

Relate to any of these? You're an anxiety-prone high achiever with a brain that just never quits; sometimes the rumination and fear takes over and really constricts your life. Or you’re struggling through changes in religious beliefs and how you’ve been led to see the world, and people don't realize just how unsettling it can feel. Or you’re hurting, but people don’t seem to fully understand...maybe you even have a hard time understanding yourself; others throw advice and techniques at you but it doesn't help.
