About me

In establishing a therapeutic relationship between you and myself is to begin with an inviting warm welcome and thank you to you by allowing this journey of engagement between us. All relationships take risks and I am honored to provide a safe space for open dialogue between us.

I combine many therapeutic modalities (i.e.,CBT, DBT, to develop your treatment plan by using a strengths-based approach to empower goals tailored to your needs and areas of concern.

I use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, which is an evidenced-based psychotherapy designed to help people with emotional dysregulation to treat mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm and substance abuse.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is a psycho-social intervention that aims to improve your mental health by focusing on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortion and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
I use Solution Focused Therapy, is an evidence-based therapeutic approach which incorporates positive psychological practices, principles, and outcomes that helps people change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on their problems. SFT is most commonly known to be a friendly, hope-eliciting, future- orientated vehicle for developing, achieving, motivating and sustaining a desired behavioral change.

I use Narrative Therapy, which is a form of psychotherapy that seeks to help people identify their values and skills and knowledge they have to live these values, so they can effectively confront the problems they face in a safe manner. This may also provide space to reflect on historical trauma and family values as it relates to the individual and their goals.

My goal is to establish a connection, whereby both you and I will partner, addressing that each person is an individual and worthy of a safe space to heal within themselves and within their relationships.
