Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Harm Reduction, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
My approach to therapy is client centered with an integration of Eclectic Therapy. Each person presents with a unique set of challenges that requires an integrative approach. My experience encompasses working with struggling couples, women with trauma, college students, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, stress management, cultural issues, trauma, and life transitions. I teach my clients how to work through conflict, and embrace the challenge while instilling hope.

I became a mental health professional to perform change advocacy for marginalized communities.
My activities outside of work consist of spending quality time with family and friends, philanthropic activities, and fitness.
One thing that I do daily that supports my mental and emotional well-being is conducting a personal mental health check-in. This allows me to assess the capacity I have to complete daily tasks.
I recharge by engaging in activities that bring me joy (i.e fitness, self-care, crafting, reading, and travel).
