Therapy can be a transformative experience when engaged in a therapeutic relationship that is encouraging and accepting. In therapy, I aim to help my clients find and harness their power at times when they feel most in need. I look forward joining you on your journey to connect with your whole self.
I believe in cultivating a strength-based, relational, and collaborative therapeutic environment. I have a passion for working with clients from diverse backgrounds as well as varied mental health needs, such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, addictive behaviors, and complex trauma. Engaging with clients through a relational approach, I find it important to incorporate a variety of interventions based on the needs of my clients. Time-limited psychodynamic psychotherapy, family systems, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and cognitive-behavioral interventions, are approaches I utilize in the therapeutic process.
Currently, I am a doctoral intern at UC Berkley and in my final year doctorate program at the California School of Professional Psychology San Francisco. Prior to entrance into school, I was a licensed, Masters level clinician in Boston, a telehealth therapist, and a lecturer at University of Massachusetts Boston. I have had the opportunity to work with clients presenting with intricate needs in outpatient and inpatient treatment settings. I have a background working with individuals, groups, couples, families, and co-parenting counseling through intersectional-culturally focused therapy.
Therapy is a process that begins as soon as one picks up the phone and schedules their first appointment. It can be beneficial and difficult at times. I believe good therapy is tailored to the needs and experiences of the client. Be it long-term or brief in nature, the therapeutic process helps one take steps towards living the best version of oneself.
