It is through congruence, a genuine ability to empathize and to be compassionate, that I believe is how an organic developing therapeutic relationship manifests. My style’s core foundation revolves around a collaboration between Rogerian Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Furthermore, I also incorporate mindfulness and aroma therapy to my practice with the intention to add a rich, and soothing human experience. My humanistic, person-centered, psychotherapeutic approach aims to provide unconditional positive regard by means of allocating a warm, comfortable, judgment free, and safe environment for you to freely engage in focused, in-depth self-exploration, and ultimately facilitate self-actualization (i.e., self-healing, personal growth, and reaching your fullest potential). While in the room, the time is yours, and I follow your lead all the while focusing on the here-and-now. It is through a supportive and collaborative process, that I express my enthusiasm to validate and also cater to your specific needs. I am respectful, accepting, and welcoming to all ages, disabilities (developmental and/or acquired), religions and/or spiritual identities, ethnicities and racial identities, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic status.
