Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), Motivational interviewing (MI)
I incorporate Cognitive Behavior Therapy most in my therapy sessions, but I also make it feel like a simple conversation so that people can relax and feel more comfortable speaking with me. I have been working as a therapist for over nine years and am thankful to continue to help those navigate through life!

I became a mental health professional after a close friend of mine was battling severe depression. However I realized as I began the masters program that this was something I should be doing due to my empathetic nature and the joy of helping others process through the difficult and uncertain things in life.
I love to travel, learn languages, try different foods, spend time with friends and family and my dog, work out, watch basketball and football, go to festivals, and listen to music.
By watching something silly and sometimes through prayer.
I have an 8 year old terrier mix named Diesel. One time I was singing and he walked over to me and started singing with me.
