My professional orientation is humanistic and relational. I have a holistic approach to wellness, and I believe in assessing and addressing multiple domains of one's life (social, emotional, mental, physical, etc) to achieve one's wellness goals. I utilize a person-centered, multicultural, and eclectic approach to help my clients.
