Therapy Style

I aspire to provide treatment with an emphasis on health and well-being, stress reduction, and diversity from a whole-person health perspective (physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual). I provide treatment using evidenced-based therapies using a holistic approach.

As a clinician, it is important to be aware of all aspects of culture that may pertain to an individual and gain the tools and strategies to most effectively assist a person. I believe it's important to emphasize collaborative shared decision-making that creates an environment for a client-centered strength-based approach.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I want to assist others to develop skills and strategies to increase health and well-being, especially in the face of stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love traveling, playing tennis, music, reading, watching sports, and spending time with family and friends.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I regularly practice mindfulness throughout the day.

What book have you read more than once?

Perfect Peace by Daniel Black - I love how the author creates a story woven with complex topics such as gender, sexuality, love, historical trauma and abuse, racism, and sexism urging the reader to consider how all these things could result in desperate decision-making.
