Managed by Octave. Your call or email may go to a representative.
I am dedicated to helping individuals feel empowered and develop healthy growth-fostering connections through mutual empathy, authenticity, and genuineness. Within the therapeutic space, I strive to create an environment that is built on trust and safety. I strongly believe that the relationship between client and counselor is an agent of change and one of the most important alliances that can be created in a therapeutic relationship.
In my work, I utilize an integrative approach that is grounded in client-centered and strengths-based approaches, while focusing on relational-cultural attributes.
I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible. To learn more about my availability, please reach out to our Client Experience team by emailing or calling.
