Working With Me

My Goal As A Therapist

I believe in tailoring treatment to fit each client’s individual needs and goals. I utilize my warm therapeutic approach to establish an alliance full of empathy and free of judgment. By promoting a safe space to openly explore challenges, we can create a natural, lasting change.Being a first generation American, it allows me to connect with clients on a profound level, understanding the nuances of their unique backgrounds and identities. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, recognizing the intricate interplay between the mind, body, and spirit 

What Therapy Looks Like With Me

In my therapeutic practice, I embrace a holistic and client-centered approach that honors the complexity of everyone’s experience. Central to my style is the belief in the power of authenticity, connection, and collaboration in a therapeutic relationship. I draw from a diverse range of modalities, including narrative therapy and mindfulness-based practices. Through the exploration of personal narratives and creative expression, clients gain deeper insights into their patterns, beliefs, and strengths, fostering self-awareness and resilience.
