What does a first session with you look like?

Throughout the therapeutic process one can expect empathetic therapy rooted in cultural understanding and a commitment to your healing. I work purposely towards creating a safe, nonjudgmental space for open sharing. Together, we'll navigate your presented experiences with a focus on your needs and strengths. I provide trauma-informed care using evidence-based approaches for healing. Collaboratively, we'll set goals and develop personalized treatment plans throughout your journey. I'll work towards empower you to explore and process your experiences, while fostering self-compassion and self-care. As an advocate, I'll offer guidance towards the reclamation of your life, while also promoting healing and growth.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Treatment methods utilizes include, but are not limited to, an integrated model which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic Therapy. CBT assists with identifying negative thoughts and behavior while also creating space to modify them by way of fostering healthier coping strategies. Mindfulness cultivates present-moment awareness, reducing reactivity and promoting self-compassion and emotional regulation. Psychodynamic therapy explores unconscious patterns and unresolved conflicts, providing insight into their impact on thoughts, feelings, and relationships. The integration of these approaches assists with my ability to tailor the therapeutic experience and address the cognitive, emotional, and relational needs of each client.
