My Approach to Helping
My goal is to encourage and guide all of my patients to achieve their goals no matter how big or how small they might be. Based on my own personal experiences, I am passionate about guiding my patients to become a healthier version of themselves inside and out, as well as to encourage them to believe in themselves. I like to engage my patients in their own treatment process because itâ€™s easy for someone else to tell you what to do, but when you do it on your own or with guidance, you become more aware and accountable. I believe that there is no â€œone size fits allâ€ approach to therapy as everyone has their own unique stories. The therapeutic approaches that I gravitate towards include cognitive behavioral, client centered, interpersonal, and exposure therapy. â€œTo change your life you have to change yourself. To change yourself you have to change your mindset.â€ -Wilson Kanadi
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking/cooking and fitness/yoga. I am also a big lover of coffee and "me" time because both are a must!
