I think effective therapy begins with empathy and authenticity. Empathy means I’m going to really hear you. I create a welcoming and safe place where you can share and unload your heavy emotional burdens—where you can be honest about your struggles and your hopes—where we can talk honestly and frankly about meaningful solutions.
Authenticity means I’m going to be my true self with you and I’m going to ask you to be your authentic self with me. I’m passionate about allowing people the space to be their truest version of themselves and helping them utilize their strengths to make lasting improvements. I’m passionate about cultural competency—about considering each of my client’s unique background and worldview.
