I'm a firm advocate for the person-centered approach, emphasizing the creation of a safe, non-judgmental space for clients to voice their unique needs, concerns, and aspirations. My priority is to actively listen and empower individuals and families to engage actively in their healing and personal growth.
Over the past four years, I've provided invaluable support to numerous families through in-home sessions, telehealth, and in-person services. This approach enables a deeper understanding of family dynamics and allows tailored therapeutic support and guidance based on individual needs. I've discovered that integrating technology into sessions fosters meaningful connections and establishes a comfortable, trusting environment where clients can address concerns within the context of their lives.
In my practice, I utilize diverse methodologies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Problem-solving Therapy, and Solution-focused work. These approaches provide individuals with the tools and opportunities necessary to evolve into their desired selves.
