One of my priorities is providing a caring and supportive space to help you cope with and resolve difficulties in your life. This includes demonstrating unconditional positive support to facilitate a connection in which you feel at ease sharing your truest thoughts, beliefs, and personal experiences. At the same time, I am a results-oriented therapist. This means that I will assist you in identifying meaningful goals that you would like to achieve, and then we will carry out a systematic approach in order to achieve those goals. In sessions with me you will experience a sense of structure and purpose. The principal treatment methods that I utilize include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (as well as other forms of mindfulness), and Solution Focused Therapy.

I am currently working towards my certification as a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) therapist from the Beck Institute.
