What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Crisis Intervention therapeutic methods, and other modalities. My belief is that rapport and honesty is important to establishing a trusting and autonomous therapist-client relationship. I am enthusiastic about destigmatizing mental health, boosting cultural awareness within mental health, working with individuals, families, & couples; while incorporating telehealth technology in mental health to reach those that typically do not have access to therapy or seeking confidentiality while maintaining self care. I am committed to helping my clients rise above challenges and learn techniques to live happier, more fulfilling lives.
