"Making the decision to enter therapy can be frightening and may weigh heavily on us yet it can make all the difference when we feel stuck, conflicted, or alone. If you have something in mind that you would like to see change, we can work collaboratively to address emotional barriers, past experiences, stressors, or relationship patterns that may be exacerbating your concern. I believe that a safe, warm, validating, culturally competent, and empathic therapeutic relationship is the foundation for change."

"You have been waiting for the right time to start therapy and things have progressed to a point where something has to change. There is a constant inner critic that creates feelings of insecurity. You ruminate over things happening at home, work, or with the people you most care about and end up beating yourself up. You find yourself in situations or making decisions you later regret and this is not where you thought you would be in your life. Things are not what you expected. These are struggles I often hear from clients I work with. Therapy can help you take control of your life and alleviate emotional pain. "

"How are various choices, self-beliefs, coping styles, and relationships combined with any mental health challenges in your life impacting you? Are they moving you toward your personal values and goals? Can you readily identify what those even are? I believe that self-exploration combined with implementing specific goals, boundaries and structures in your life allows for both understanding and forward movement. Thus, my approach draws from behavioral change approaches of CBT and DBT modalities as well as acceptance, reflection, and high regard of person-centered and Adlerian therapies. "
