What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach to treatment is highly relational, as I believe that the foundation of counseling is a strong and genuine connection between the client and therapist. My goal is to create a space where clients can feel, be seen, and heard. My style is a blend of compassion, kindness, acceptance and authenticity; I am direct and engaging, action-oriented and solution-focused.

What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

I firmly believe every person possesses the ability to learn from and work through whatever complications, obstacles, and hardship life may present. By providing tools you can utilize for the rest of your life, I will help you access your inner resilience to become your most content and fulfilled self.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Trust, respect, and congruence are major components of a good therapeutic relationship. In addition to empathy and genuineness. Providing a safe space for the client where there is no differentiation in hierarchy between therapist and client but rather a comfortable and relatable space for client. As with any other social relationship, the therapeutic relationship has boundaries which help to define acceptable and not so much behaviors.
