What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize Strengths-Based, Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-Focused Therapy platforms that focuses on specific goals and behavioral patterns to treat the client's mental health concerns. I motivate my clients to "Live with Clarity.Purpose.Intention" as they learn how to cope more effectively with life's challenges. I have a passion for helping individuals recognize their purpose and their need to create intentional change.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

My life philosophy speaks to keeping open and honest communication in my personal & professional relationships to develop better bonds. My treatment philosophy mirrors this sentiment as I encourage my clients to "communicate for understanding and not to respond". This is a skill I especially educate my couples on to build a relationship standing on respect, honor and integrity creating a more effective union.

What does a first session with you look like?

My sessions are designed to offer a space where clients feel safe to express their vulnerabilities in a judgment-free zone. I begin with the sessions being person-centered, focusing on the client's strengths, and setting goals to direct the path of healing. At the end of each session, we recap the therapeutic discussion and the client leaves with a "Healing Work" assignment helping them to progress towards their stated goals.
