 A glance at my professional story:


My professional journey within the mental health field began in 2013. Initially, I spent several years providing rehabilitative care to adults and youth who had sustained acquired brain injury and experienced other challenges such as dual diagnosis, substance abuse, and mental health concerns. More recently, my therapeutic work has been focused on helping individuals manage day-to-day stress, worries about the future, feeling depressed, stuck, and overwhelmed.
 
My overall approach to therapy: 
 
My approach is warm, transparent, and collaborative. I am committed to meeting you where you are on your journey and providing you support that is based on your personal characteristics, culture, and preferences to enhance your psychological health and functioning.

 
I am straightforward in providing you with feedback and encourage you to do the same. As a result, we can create a counseling environment that would provide you with optimal support and maximize your therapeutic gains.  My practice is supervised by a Registered Psychotherapist. 
 
My mission:
 
I am passionate about helping others, building strong communities, and genuinely love what I do. I believe that we all have strengths and resiliency, which I aim to identify and further build upon.
 I provide young adults, adults, and elderly adults support with: 

·Anxiety
·Depression
·Life Transitions/Changes
·Stress Management
·Self-care
·Self-esteem 
·Relationship skills 
 

Potential therapeutic gains:

·Attain new insights, practical tools, and strategies
·Increase motivation, determination
·Reduce worry and minimize depressed states
·Learn how to balance stress and improve your self-care

Therapy modalities that I use:

·Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): focuses on identifying what factors contribute to the development and maintenance of your challenges along with practical strategies to help you overcome them.

·Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): focuses on providing you with mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation skills

· Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): focuses on generating solutions, clarifying preferred ways of living, and utilizing goals to help you achieve the desired change.

My fees:

· Individual virtual and phone sessions: $110 per 50-minute session (currently offering individual therapy only)
· Couples virtual sessions via secure video-conferencing $165 per 60-minute session (contact me and join my waitlist)
