Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, Relational, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I utilize a strength-based, trauma-informed, and culturally responsive approach, encouraging clients to share their experiences, thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental space. I work collaboratively with clients to increase self-compassion and self-acceptance while encouraging and supporting them to build healthier relationships with themselves and others. I am committed to helping instill hope and build resiliency in those that I am supporting.
