My Approach

Arrow Icon

Diversified Work

Arrow Icon

I work with clients using a combination of solution-focused and strength-based strategies, a variety of mindfulness-based techniques, and cognitive behavioral therapy to manage their emotions, thoughts, and actions. With this integrative approach, clients can learn to transition from reactivity to a reflective and mindful state. In collaboration with the individual, we will discover what is best suited for what they need and want.

Culturally Sensitive Therapy

Therapy is more effective when it takes into consideration the cultures that you identify with and how they shape your beliefs and your worldview.

You already have tremendous resources within to deal with any problem or crisis. Together, we'll look at the strengths that have helped you overcome adversity in the past and explore how you can use those strengths to meet your goals today.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

We’ll work together to discover and reshape the negative thought patterns that might be holding you back. You'll learn new strategies for navigating any challenges that you are facing.

Mindfulness-Based Practices

Arrow Icon

More and more research is showing the benefits of mindfulness in alleviating stress, depression, and anxiety and in helping us live lives of more joy and purpose. It’s important to note that mindfulness isn’t a new concept and that it has its origin dating back 2,500 years ago in Buddhist and Hindu practices. The integration of mindfulness in psychology (among other areas) shows its universality in clarity, emotional balance and compassion.* In working with me, clients get the time and space to become more aware and present in their lives. And they learn how to make mindfulness a regular practice. *Kabat-Zinn, J., Williams, J.M.G. (2013). Mindfulness: Diverse Perspectives on its Meaning, Origins, and Applications.
