My Approach to Helping

When treating clients, I utilize multiple forms of therapy including person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. Each client is unique and each approach should be tailored to what the client needs and where they are in their therapeutic journey. I understand that seeking therapy can be a scary and uncomfortable process so, I believe that creating a safe environment and forming a solid and strong rapport is essential. Once rapport is established, the client can begin to explore different issues and challenges at their own pace.

More Info About My Practice

Over the past 8 years, I've gained experience in the mental health field by working in a residential treatment setting as well as outpatient mental health clinics. I've always been interested in the field of psychology and advocating for mental health. I earned my master's degree from Walden University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a Specialization in Trauma and Crisis.
