Professional statement

I am a Licensed Social Worker, dedicated to promoting mental health and well-being through compassionate counseling. My therapeutic approach integrates various modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness techniques, deep breathing exercises, and a client-centered, strengths-based perspective. I am also eager to expand my expertise through future training in Internal Family Systems (IFS).

With several years of experience in the field, I've had the privilege of working with a diverse range of individuals in clinical settings. I've provided support to clients facing challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief.

What truly fuels my passion as a counselor and as an individual is my commitment to helping those who have experienced trauma, grief, or wrestle with anxiety and depression. My mission is to guide them on their journey, empowering them, equipping them with coping skills, and fostering a deeper self-understanding to navigate life's adversities more effectively.

My preferred client population includes teenagers and young adults, starting from the age of 14 and up. I have a particular affinity for clients who are open to investing time and embracing vulnerability as they pursue healing and personal growth.

I look forward to the opportunity to support you on your path to greater well-being and personal development.

Message to clients

Before we dive into our sessions, I want you to know that your well-being and personal growth are my top priorities. Consider this space a haven—a place where you can freely explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with compassion and understanding.

I genuinely believe in the transformative power of therapy, and I am thrilled to embark on this journey with you. My goal is for our sessions to be a wellspring of support, insight, and empowerment. Whether you're overcoming challenges, seeking clarity, or simply pursuing personal growth, count on me to be fully committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Your well-being is at the forefront of everything we do, and I'm here to support you at every turn. If any questions or concerns arise, please don't hesitate to share them with me. Together, let's chart a course towards a brighter and more fulfilling future.

Excited to be on this journey with you!
