Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
My approach to therapy is goal driven with an emphasis on building a strong therapeutic relationship, gaining insight and awareness, and using oneself as the expert on overcoming one’s issues. I operate mostly from a Cognitive Behavioral approach to therapy while utilizing a person centered framework and psychodynamic interventions. My professional interests include anxiety, depression, identity exploration, trauma, eating disorders, body image issues, and interpersonal relationship concerns.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
I believe that each interaction with clients is an opportunity for clinicians to gain better understandings of diverse cultures. As a clinician of color, understanding diversity and advocating for the rights of marginalized individuals are essential aspects of my work. I believe that developing multicultural competency is a journey filled with pathways of exploring clients’ identities and world views and how those things impact their experiences and well-being.
My personal interests include spending time with loved ones, dance, art, fitness, cooking, and all things DIY.
