My interactions with clients are grounded in compassion, respect, empathy, and an understanding of cultural impacts. I consider the role of a therapist as helping to educate and empower clients so that they develop the insight and skills necessary to overcome their own personal and situational challenges.
I specialize in working with individual who struggle with childhood trauma, anxiety related issues, life transitions, depression, and other life experiences that have impacted you in a negative way. I aim to provide an authentic, non-judgmental, laid back experience during sessions assisting individuals to function in their "BEST SELF"!
I collaborate with my clients to gain insight with through patterns, reduce stress and improve their wellbeing. In sessions we'll discuss practical coping skills and discuss how past experiences shape your views and responses. I believe that insight into your patterns can help you make decisions that result in long-lasting change and satisfaction.
