Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I find that the most effective way is to approach everyone in an authentic, strength-based, nonjudgmental balanced approach in order to meet the individual where they are in their stage of healing. I provide a safe space for individuals to discuss their deepest issues in order to help them process, identify, and cope with past traumas or issues they have been dealing with. Doing so gives them another perspective and provides another route to their healing journey. I truly believe that there is no set way to healing. My goal is to help you find your way to a journey of self-love, healing, and learning the other side of yourself that you seek.
MSW - Social Work, California State University, Los Angeles
I am fascinated by the human mind and passionate about helping others. We all go through a journey of healing in life and I want to help as many people suffering to find their true selves in order to heal emotionally and spiritually and enjoy the beauty of life.
My interests outside of work include exercising: running, boxing, and basketball. I love being outside and in nature which is why I enjoy hiking, golfing, and sailing. In addition, I enjoy reading and engaging in spiritual practices.
I pray daily and I exercise daily. I wake up early to engage in self-care which gives me peace and prepares me for the day.
The Bible is something I always come back to as it gives me peace and a spiritual connection with God that is unexplainable.
Sleeping, resting, or lounging around is the best way for me to recharge every night. A healthy sleep routine is the key to my work ethic and emotional well-being overall.
