Therapy is a place where solace, healing, and personal journey know no bounds. Life can be unpredictable at times which may lead to hardships that can be explored together in therapy. I am a counseling intern and SOTP trainee at CFS, Inc. My therapeutic style is grounded in Humanistic and Existential approaches, but I also utilize other techniques to tailor to client needs. I aim to empower clients and work collaboratively as equals, while maintaining cultural awareness and sensitivity. As a therapist, I value communication, patience, empathy, and optimism to get to know my clients and establish a strong therapeutic alliance.
