Approach to TherapyMy work centers around helping you piece together your past and present, supporting you to reconcile with yourself and build your wellness in
balance and harmony. Through the process of building therapeutic alliance with you, I bring together elements that I believe are necessary for
therapy to have the best outcome, based on your immediate and secondary needs. With this approach, my framework allows me to engage in and use
a Client Centered approach as a foundation, combining therapeutic techniques through Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, Attachment
Theory, and Family Systems Theory.
BackgroundI have experience working with individuals from a range of cultural backgrounds and ages, who may be struggling with negative self-value,
mood disorders, anxiety, grief, depression, life changes and trauma. I enjoy working with couples in building communication and conflict
management skills and in creating emotional healing and connection. I also have experience working with parents and their children who
exhibit behavioral issues and developmental delays.
More About MeI enjoy spending time with my dog, Furball, a goofy husky, taking long walks together. When Furball needs more time and space,
I utilize my free time to recharge myself through music, meditation, and yoga.
