My Approach to Helping

I have experience in several medical settings including in an adolescent long-term residential facility that treats both substance abuse and mental health disorders. I believe that therapy is an essential way to understand how patterns of thinking can affect individuals' emotional and physical bodies. Gaining insight of the internal self through a therapeutic alliance involving empathy and radically genuine interactions, and learning the mind-body connection, guides us to acknowledge and accept our actions, reactions, and behaviors.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, listening to music, meeting new people, learning about different cultures, traveling, practicing yoga and mindfulness meditation, and playing with my two dogs. I believe that a positive relationship with animals can be therapeutic in it of itself.
