WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST
We live in a world full of challenges that sometimes can be overwhelming and confusing. It is my passion to help others find strength and courage they didn’t know they had, and to witness the personal transformation that comes from sharing your story in a safe and non-judgmental space. I create a space where individuals can come to breathe, experience unconditional acceptance, and positive reflection.
I BECAME A THERAPIST TO HELP CLIENTS GAIN INSIGHT ON DIFFICULT SITUATIONS THEY ENCOUNTER, IN ORDER TO BUILD THE SELF-CONFIDENCE NEEDED TO FACE ANY LIFE CHALLENGES.
I approach the therapeutic relationship with genuineness, in order for the client to become comfortable to share their story.
As a therapist, I strive to provide interventions that are non-judgmental and culturally competent. I use evidence based treatments, including cognitive behavior therapy to address how the client’s thought process influences their actions and behaviors.
When I work with clients, I focus on:
understanding | self-awareness | coping skills
WHO I WORK WITH
My area of expertise is working with individuals who are overcoming painful emotions such as guilt, shame, or inadequacy that have been holding them back from living their best lives.
