My Approach to Helping
I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds with various presenting problems. I prefer working with individuals who are struggling with various life issues, particularly life transitions. My work with adults focuses on the challenges they may experience in life. Some of these pertain to identity development, interpersonal conflicts, sexuality, relationship status, religious or spiritual beliefs, anxiety, depression, racial or ethnic identity concerns, low self-esteem, and stress.
I usually operate from a cognitive behavioral approach and I take into consideration the relational dynamic between the therapist and client in the room as well as the clients’ relationships in and outside of therapy. I work collaboratively with clients to set goals and have specialized training to work with clients of various religious backgrounds.
I completed a Master of Arts degree in Theology and Ministry and a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree in Clinical Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary. I also previously obtained a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and have been working in the n the mental health field for over ten years.
