Do you often feel like you are just trying to survive or are barely staying afloat? Are you feeling inadequate in the spaces you occupy such as school, work, or home? Have you ever wondered if there is more to your identity than the mental health concerns that you experience? Are you struggling to express how you feel because you do not know the source of your emotions? If you are reading this right now, I am proud of you for getting here. I normalize the self-doubt that you are going through. If you resonate with one of the aforementioned questions, I can partner with you to validate you and to determine the best solutions that will help you feel you can thrive despite all the challenges you may face.
Throughout the years of being a therapist, the highest efficacy I find in my work is to balance between a person-centered approach while emphasizing solution-focused psychotherapy. My passion has been to work with teenagers to middle-aged adults to engage in introspection. I believe the process of unraveling your story can bring to light emotions, thought processes, and core beliefs that can help you understand what you are experiencing. This work will take time; it may be a vulnerable journey, but it can also be rewarding.
As a generalist practitioner, I have experience in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, relational distress, academic concerns, risk evaluations, grief and loss, and life transitions. Identity development holds a special place in my therapist heart because I believe it can promote confidence and feelings of worthiness to help you succeed in the season of life you are in.
