My therapeutic approach can be described as holistic, integrative, and client-centered. My therapeutic style is warm, collaborative, and non-dogmatic. I work with my clients in a relationship oriented manner, attending closely to their unique strengths, culture, cognitions and abilities. I demonstrate these therapeutic values in my style of rapport, direction of treatment, and the safe environment I create for my clients to openly question and feel heard. I will meet you where you are and help you grow from there. People who work with me feel empowered. They also report experiencing a sense of clarity, and maturity overtime.

I work with a variety of concerns such as, Trauma & PTSD, Stress & Health, Loss, Behavior Problems, Emotion Regulation, Identity Related Matters, Life Transitions, Depression, Anxiety, Personality Disorders, and Autism.

I work with a variety of populations. Some include executives, college students, international students, immigrants, mothers, LGBT+, atheists, muslims, etc. If you would like to learn more please visit my website www.livebettertherapeuticservices.com
