Facing difficult emotional and interpersonal challenges in our lives can be frightening but can also be a time for growth and healing. Talking with someone who listens without judgment, understands your concerns, and helps you clarify issues can be invaluable. I am a culturally competent therapist with experience working with various populations including, the LGBTQ community, adolescents, adults, couples, veterans, and those suffering from chronic illness. My therapeutic approach is solution-focused and strength-based, faith/spirituality can be incorporated into treatment as well.
I utilize an integration of modalities to best fit individual needs and to aid in behavior modification. I implement evidence-based therapy techniques including, but not limited to, mindfulness-based interventions, IBCT, CBT, ACT, and DBT to address symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relational problems, and/or other life stressors.
My role as a therapist is to support you and to challenge you on your path to self-improvement and self-empowerment. Through a collaborative process, we can explore and address the underlying causes of problematic behaviors, beliefs, and feelings. Together we can begin the process of healing.
