It is my passion to normalize mental health treatment and improve accessibility to mental health care for all, by listening to the individual’s needs and wants, assisting them to reach their unique goals. Every person experiences the world in a different way depending on their history and intersectionality. I believe it's important to go into your world as much as possible and work with you on the things you face and see them from your perspective.
I have clinical experience in Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Multicultural Counseling, LGBTQQAI+ Affirmative Competency, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Creative and Expressive Art Techniques, and Trauma Informed Care.
I believe in creating a collaborative, non-judgmental, supportive therapeutic environment to build a trusting relationship that leads to the empowerment and growth of the client. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, creating art, or planning my next travel adventure.
