The hallmark of the therapeutic relationship is authenticity--that is you should feel the joy of being seen and heard and the freedom of expressing and discovering your true self. With each client, I strive to create a space of genuine collaboration in a nonthreatening environment filled with trust and mutual respect.
My therapeutic approach incorporates evidence-based practices to help you build your own toolkit of coping skills. I integrate a variety of theoretical orientations and tailor them to your own unique circumstances in order to keep you moving forward toward your goals.
Ultimately, therapy doesn't have to be intimidating; I bring humor, warmth, and empathy to my sessions to help you feel at home, valued, and listened to. Cultural sensitivity is a critical part of all my work, and my goal is always for you to feel empowered to be an agent of positive change in your own life.
