Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I believe therapy should be a safe space for healing. My approach is non-judgmental, compassionate, supportive, and client centered. I work within a holistic, whole person framework, addressing mind, body, emotional, and spiritual interconnectedness, to help clients discover their authentic selves, make meaning of life experiences, become empowered, and heal trauma.
