I am knowledgeable about trauma informed care. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in order to help my clients see that their feelings, behaviors and actions are connected and how to change their actions for the better. I use Client-Centered Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy as well so I can best adapt and adjust to the ever-changing needs of the person I am working with whether it be a child, teenager, or an adult.
I practice from a non-judgmental, empathetic, and genuine approach as I respect the power of one’s narrative. I embrace various treatment modalities to better assist those that I serve, as I am a believer in treating the whole person. I am skilled in activism, mentorship, and I am an advocate for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. I believe in change and that one can be the best versions of themselves when allotted the space, time, encouragement, and tools to meet their overall wellness needs and desires.
I value collaboration and finding strengths in each person’s narrative. I practice from a culturally sensitive, anti- oppression, and trauma informed Lense. I utilize an eclectic approach that often includes Person Centered theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I 2 also incorporate mindfulness-based strategies in my practices.
