My Approach to Helping

I am passionate, enthusiastic, always supportive of patients working through difficult decisions, and give guidance towards long-term change. I believe that the journey starts with where the patient is and that there is no such thing as slow progress. I recognize how developing new skills and philosophies about the self can profoundly affect the rest of one’s life. Therefore, I believe that therapy should be flexible, emphasizing the therapeutic alliance.

I am highly skilled in addressing mental health and substance abuse issues and focus on finding solutions, breaking down problems into themes, and helping patients understand themselves at a deeper level by first and foremost being genuine and empathic. I use analogies and parables to help clients visualize their situations differently.

My primary therapeutic approaches include person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and gestalt. I have a long history of competitive video gaming experience. My history behind the headset has excelled my ability to engage with patients from any background, especially in comforting clientele new to telehealth.
