My prior experience working with those suffering from substance abuse disorder, anxiety, and complicated grief has strengthened my understanding of the human condition. In addition, my past experience working as a therapist has enhanced my appreciation for the individuality each client displays, and has made me cherish the collaborative process that clients and therapists get to take part in. I cultivate a client-friendly environment and work with my clients to develop their own goals for therapy. I also feel building a rapport with my clients is vital to help them in their growth.
I utilize evidence-based techniques of psychotherapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT). This may entail me assisting my clients in identifying unhelpful types of thinking, and helping my clients better understand the importance of staying in the present moment.
As a therapist, my goal is to meet the client where they are and work collaboratively with them so they can live a more content life. Each of us will face many obstacles in our lifetime, and therapy can empower us to better cope with such adversity, and make challenges that may seem overwhelming at first become manageable.
