My Approach to Helping
I am an experienced therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults and couples. I provide treatment for a variety of issues, including: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, and trauma. Through the use of evidence-based interventions including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and play therapy techniques I help client identify their triggers, and learn healthier ways to manage their emotions and deal with life stressors.
I believe in focusing on the unique strengths that each individual possesses and how those strengths can help them in overcoming their challenges. I also believe that the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client is an important factor in the success of therapy and strive to create a safe and understanding therapeutic environment.
I am a bi-cultural and bilingual therapist, and enjoy working with people of all backgrounds and ethnicities. Though my office is located in Washington D.C, I am licensed in DC and Virginia, and can offer tele-therapy to people located in Virginia who may prefer this method of communication due to their schedules.
