Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I offer short and long-term psychotherapy for individuals, adolescents, children, couples, and families. I work with clients from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds and develop a specific treatment plan to meet the needs of each one of my clients. I have over eight years of experience in the mental health field working in various settings including outpatient clinics, schools, community mental health, and private practice.

I facilitate client’s healing and growth by creating a real partnership and a safe environment as well as by being authentic, supportive, compassionate and empathic within a nonjudgmental atmosphere. I feel honored to do this work and privileged to help individuals on their journey.
