About me


I offer various services tailored to meet my clients' diverse needs. Drawing from my education, training, and personal experiences, I provide a holistic approach to therapy that integrates evidence-based practices with empathy, understanding, and cultural sensitivity. I offer individual therapy sessions for adolescents and adults facing a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, life transitions, and relationship issues. Using a person-centered approach, I collaborate with clients to identify their goals and develop personalized treatment plans to address their unique needs.

Welcome to my therapy practice, where I believe in the power of diversity and flexibility in therapeutic approaches to meet the unique needs of each individual. I integrate a variety of therapeutic modalities to provide comprehensive and personalized care for clients.

My approach is rooted in the belief that no single therapeutic modality fits all and that different individuals may benefit from different approaches at different stages of their journey. I strive to create a collaborative and empowering therapeutic environment where clients feel supported, understood, and encouraged to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.

Drawing from a range of evidence-based practices, I am trained in various modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness-based approaches, solution-focused therapy, and narrative therapy. This diverse toolkit allows me to tailor interventions to match each client's specific needs, preferences, and goals.

For clients who are seeking practical strategies to address specific challenges or symptoms, I may incorporate techniques from CBT, such as cognitive restructuring or exposure therapy, to help them develop coping skills and change unhelpful thought patterns or behaviors. For those who are interested in exploring the root causes of their difficulties and gaining insight into their underlying motivations, psychodynamic therapy may be a valuable approach.

Mindfulness-based practices, such as mindfulness meditation and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), are integrated to help clients cultivate present-moment awareness, self-compassion, and acceptance. These practices can be particularly beneficial for individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, or stress-related issues.

In addition to these modalities, I also emphasize the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust, empathy, and collaboration. I believe that the therapeutic relationship itself can be a powerful agent of change, and work closely with clients to establish a safe and supportive space for exploration and growth.

Whether you're facing challenges related to anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, or life transitions, my goal is to provide you with the tools, insights, and support you need to navigate your journey toward healing and personal transformation. I invite you to take the first step towards a more fulfilling and empowered life by reaching out to my practice today.
