My therapeutic approach is individualized, collaborative and supportive. I may incorporate mindfulness and meditation practices to help you live more fully in the present moment, or offer you tools to help with behavior changes. Together we will work on developing a treatment plan based off of your past experiences and future goals. My aim is to listen to you, support you, and help you understand yourself better. The importance of providing you a non-judgmental and culturally sensitive space as we work together is of the utmost importance to me.

Hey there! My treatment method is a partnership and multi-faceted approach toward patient-centered care. With the support from the collaborative treatment team at SokyaHealth, my desire is to provide client-specific care, as each individual is unique. The stigma associated with mental health illness is one of the biggest barriers presented to mental health providers. The brain is just as susceptible as any organ to illness, and there should be no shame in receiving treatment. It takes a courageous person to seek help and take the first steps in making a change.

The decision to seek help can be an incredibly daunting task. However, the need for help is valid for all of us and it is something I believe should be better normalized. Whether we are feeling stuck, experiencing anxiety or depression, struggling in life transitions, or relationship issues, sometimes a comforting form of support can help us weather those challenges so that we do not feel so alone. Having this kind of support in facing such challenges can be deeply reassuring. As a therapist, I hope to accompany you on your journey and help you overcome any such challenges.
