My counseling style is warm, interactive, and direct. I believe in treating everyone with respect, empathy, and compassion, and I believe people are the experts of their own experiences and life. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. I collaborate with individuals to discuss their needs, concerns and develop treatment goals to help support and guide them through their journey to wellness.
