About

Since 2017, I have worked on a community-based mental health treatment team, helping individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness and those with histories of homelessness, psychiatric hospitalizations, and substance abuse. I also have experience working with those who struggle with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, life transitions and other general mental health concerns.
In therapy, I use an integrative and person-centered approach. I often use CBT techniques, mindfulness and motivational interviewing. I also believe that developing and maintaining a safe environment, mutual understanding and collaborative relationship are all essential for the counselor/client relationship.
My clients are my priority, and my goal is to develop a trusting and genuine relationship with each person I work with. Together we will explore your goals, strengths, past experiences and ways to enhance your quality of life.
