About me

Hi there! Thanks for taking a look at my services. Please note before choosing to work with me that I use only asynchronous messaging for services and DO NOT MEET VIA VIDEO OR VOICE chat. I am scheduled to check messages weekday evenings and I am not scheduled to check messages at weekends. If this schedule and using messaging only works for you, I hope you'll continue reading to get an idea about how I work with clients.

Empowerment occurs when we transform intention to action. I have a collaborative yet challenging approach in my work with individual clients. Your mind is where intention moves toward action. I see it as my job to help you find answers that are already within you from a strengths-based approach. Because we are working together collaboratively, you have the freedom to express what you need from psychotherapy and I will want to spend time exploring how your cultural background impacts your presenting concerns. You're also in therapy for change and that's where my ability to challenge you comes in. I can provide a positive relationship in which you can learn about yourself and grow. Further, mindfulness is a large part of how I approach our work together, particularly as you are working toward new thoughts and behaviors with the goal of improving your life in general. If all this sounds like what you're looking for, I look forward to hearing from you!
