My approach to mental health treatment incorporates mental, physical, social, and spiritual wellness among other elements. I particularly offer Multicultural Counseling for individuals dealing with immigration and cultural adjustment and identity difficulties. I also offer Christian Counseling to clients who would like to integrate their faith and spirituality into treatment. I am persuaded that the context in which we live our lives and the way in which we interact with the world around us impacts our perspective on well being and our efforts in maintaining good health. I, therefore encourage clients to embrace their spirituality, strengthen positive elements in their social interactions, adapt a positive perspective on life, explore their emotions, and take charge of their health and well being.
My treatment approach involves an invitation to clients to a collaborative partnership in order to address the issues that they present to therapy. This is a strength-based approach that enables clients to discover their potential and abilities to overcome obstacles that slow them down. As a result, clients are able to take control of their health and bring change in their lives. I believe that within each individual is the capacity to overcome difficulty and prevail over challenging life circumstances. I am committed to help you take charge of your health and empower you to improve the quality of your life!

My Guiding Ethical Principles
My guiding principle as a therapist is a belief that the power to bring changes resides in the client. My role, therefore is to guide the client in discovering the resources he/she already has in their possession that would aid them in overcoming the obstacles that hinder their full functionality.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Contrary to the commonly believed notion that going to therapy means a person is flawed, seeking therapy is actually an indicator that a person is strong but is aware that they are not maximizing the fullness of their strength! I tend to counter this notion by reminding clients that challenges, stressors, and difficulties are a part of life and that all human beings need to find a healthy way of dealing with these issues. Therapy has the unique ability to bring to the surface strengths that clients often are unaware that they have.
