My Approach to Helping
I created my practice with the vision that all of us are meant to take control of our lives and live a life that is rich and fulfilling. My mission is to empower the people I work with - and although we can't stop the stressful, demanding and negative events in our lives - we all possess the power to tackle those stresses with confidence. Many people spend time dwelling in their past or lost in anxiety about what is coming in their future; this can lead us down a road of sadness, anxiety and daily stress that deteriorates one's well being. If you are overwhelmed with finding a healthy work-life balance, difficulty with your relationships or feeling as if the weight of world lays on your shoulders; know that you are capable of your own transformation.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and am in constant pursuit to further my education; I've earned certificates in Advanced Assessment and Diagnosis as well as Mindfulness Therapy. My therapeutic approach uses Cognitive Behavioral foundations with elements of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and ACT Therapy to guide clients through the therapeutic process. Mindfulness is a key technique in these theoretical frameworks, and something I truly believe in, therefore it is interwoven in my approach.
When you come into a session you will be welcomed with a warm and empathic relationship. I believe that therapy should be interactive and provide clients with practical tools to access and apply when the unpredictable realities of the world confront you. I believe that each person is the expert on themselves and the collaboration between client and therapist will be the foundation of treatment.
