Therapy Style

I have experience in working in clinics, community-based outpatients, and detention settings. I have a passion for working with young adults in efforts of assisting them in re-writing their stories and utilizing necessary coping skills to manage and evolve during difficult times. I assist my clients in separating themselves from their problems, giving their stories meaning, helping shape their identity, and discovering their life purpose.

My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, child abuse, neglect, trauma, adjustment issues, divorce and separation, stress management, personal growth, and coping skills.

I approach therapy with a client-centered perspective in which I focus on genuineness and empathy.
