Approach to Individual Counseling

Taking Notes

As a culturally sensitive therapist specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), trauma, and spirituality, I am committed to providing culturally competent and holistic mental health support for women. I understand the importance of respecting and valuing diverse cultural backgrounds, belief systems, and experiences in therapy, and aim to support women in personal growth, healing, and the development of a meaningful and fulfilling life.

CBT is an evidence-based approach that focuses on identifying and changing unhelpful thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. By examining the connections between our thoughts, feelings, and actions, CBT helps individuals develop healthier coping strategies and achieve personal growth.

Trauma can have a profound impact on a person's well-being and requires a compassionate and trauma-informed approach. I recognize the unique needs of individuals who have experienced trauma and aim to create a safe and supportive environment to address their healing needs.

Spirituality is an integral aspect of many people's lives and can play a significant role in their well-being. As a spiritual therapist, I appreciate the importance of exploring and integrating one's spiritual beliefs and practices into the therapeutic process, if desired. I am respectful of diverse spiritual paths and strive to foster a non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their spirituality in relation to their mental health, traumas and emotional pain.

Approach to 
Family Counseling

Family can be a source of great strength, but conflicts within families can also cause significant pain. Unresolved issues between family members can gradually erode relationships, creating discomfort for all involved. Family counseling offers a dedicated space where family members can come together in a safe and supportive environment. It provides an opportunity to respectfully express concerns, explore underlying issues, and actively work on repairing damaged relationships. Through family counseling, families can discover healthier ways to communicate, rebuild trust, and strengthen their bonds, fostering a more harmonious and fulfilling family dynamic.

Common issues families seek help for include:

  • Adult child and parent conflict

  • Blended family adjustment

  • Sibling conflict

  • Difficulties with in-laws

  • Marital conflict

  • Parenting style differences

  • Intergenerational trauma
