What does a first session with you look like?

I think every individual must have someone by their side whom they can trust and connect deeply with while walking through their most vulnerable moments and significant life events and events.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I work from a trauma-informed, person-centered, and culturally-competent framework that guides my work and values. . In my practice, I meet individuals and start their journey from “ where they are.” I believe the therapeutic alliance between clinician and client is vital, and I enter their world right from that spot “where they are.” I use evidence-based modalities and tailor those to each individual's needs. I believe it is crucial to use a treatment approach that meets an individual’s specific needs. What I like the most about my work is that it has helped me to develop as a person. I do not only help my clients to achieve desired changes and grow, but they will also help me grow while we go through every journey together.
