My Approach to Helping

When you are in psychological distress and someone really hears you without passing judgment, without trying to take responsibility, without trying to mold you, the impact can be profound. I strive to be authentic, accepting, and empathetic in the therapeutic relationship to provide a safe space that allows for you to be truly heard. My ideal client is one who is ready to do the difficult work. Yes, if we do the work then life becomes an opportunity to love, live, and live life.

As a therapist, I have worked with adults experiencing difficult life transitions, stress, anxiety, depression, identity issues (race, gender, sexuality), as well as psychosis. I have experience with helping individuals in developing skills in such areas as, mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal awareness, and relapse prevention.

I practice from a client-centered multi-cultural perspective, fostering a space for you to be open and genuine as I am with you. I am versed in cognitive behavioral interventions, having completed my training at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital. Change is never easy, but always possible.
