Why I do this work
I believe that all humans innately have the capacity for change and growth. I also believe that each and every one of us has a unique story that helps to shape our views of the world. In life, our stories can at times become complicated and overwhelming and in these moments, we may need to seek help in order to find clarity. Therapy creates a unique opportunity for individuals from similar or different backgrounds to work together to help overcome different stressors in life, as well as to celebrate moments of strength and resilience. Theoretically, I work from a systemic framework which allows me to look not only at a specific situation or incident but to look at your life and your story from a holistic viewpoint. In therapy, we will work together to help you achieve the goals that feel most salient. I am excited and honored to be a part of your journey.
The best part of my job
The best part of my job is watching clients increase their confidence, learn about their patterns and behaviors and live their authentic lives.
How I spend my free time
Exercising at Orangetheory Fitness, working on my book, and spending time with my niece.
