My therapeutic work is based in the belief that we all have inner strengths; therefore I work collaboratively with clients to access and utilize their strengths so they can live happier and more fulfilling lives. I believe in meeting and honoring my clients where they are in their process and use the therapeutic relationship as a catalyst for change.

I provide a safe space for my clients to explore the changes they want to make, taking in consideration their values, culture, and spiritual background.
