What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use an eclectic approach that creates a safe, healing space that includes the client’s needs. I soundly believe that if you can change your thoughts, you can change how you feel and improve the overall quality of your life. We are meant to have fulfilling lives. My goal is to assist clients recognized the strengths that they naturally hold while helping them feel encouraged and supported through this journey of personal growth. I believe therapy is a journey of self-discovery of one’s underlying issues and an opportunity to see the unique potential of resiliency and empowerment they hold. It is never too late to regain control of your life and gain the utmost self-awareness. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
