Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Solution-focused, Strengths-based
As your therapist, I will meet you where you are at, while considering your strengths and your history in helping you to attain your goals or your desired outcome for therapy. I am compassionate about my clients and love to see the personal growth they make in the therapy process. I offer tools and interventions for change.
The therapy modalities that I use are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) approach as well as a solution focused approach towards meeting goals that are created collaboratively. I work with individuals in creating better communication skills, assertiveness skills and empowerment for self- esteem building.

I have always been passionate about helping others. Mental health is at the core of everyone, so I was naturally drawn to this field.
I like to hike and take my dog for walks on the beach. I enjoy gardening and volunteering with the homeless.
I take walk breaks during the day, I pray and/or meditate. Creativity is very key in supporting my emotional well being. I like digging in the soil or designing things in my environment.
I recharge by swimming or getting in any form of water like a jacuzzi or a steam room.
