My Approach to Helping
I believe in creating affirming, brave, and safe spaces for all my clients. I celebrate my client\'s diversity and actively seek to approach their concerns with respect and urgency. My goal is to develop collaborative relationships with my clients to achieve their therapeutic goals. I strive to utilize practical techniques, tools, and valuable resources to assist my clients as they navigate through challenges. My goal is to tailor the counseling experience to the needs and concerns of my clients so, I use a variety of counseling treatment such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), and Gestalt therapy.
My hobbies include volunteering in my community, going for a walk on local trails throughout the DFW, spending time with my son and family, working on arts and craft projects I find on YouTube, and trying new recipes I find on Pinterest.
