My areas of expertise anxiety, depression, school-related issues, work-related issues, social identity, and self-esteem. My therapeutic approach is diverse, drawing from Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Strength-Based Therapy. I also incorporate Play-Therapy Techniques to create a comfortable and engaging environment for my clients. Additionally, I am actively engaged in working with clients who struggle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Collaborating closely with Andrea Alvarez, M.Ed., LPC-S, NCC, a seasoned expert in OCD treatment and the Executive Director and Owner of AMA, I am committed to providing the most effective interventions for my clients. Andrea and I are currently collaborating on treatment plans tailored to the unique needs of individuals with OCD, utilizing evidence-based approaches in managing OCD symptoms.
Furthering my dedication to OCD treatment and enhancing my skills in this area, I am scheduled to attend the Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) later this year. BTTI offers intensive training in ERP, providing me with the latest tools and techniques to support my clients on their journey towards recovery from OCD.
By integrating my expertise in various therapeutic modalities with specialized training in OCD treatment, I am equipped to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to individuals seeking relief from OCD symptoms. My collaboration with Andrea Alvarez and ongoing professional development underscore my commitment to delivering high-quality therapy and fostering positive outcomes for my clients.
I am proud of you. Today you took one of the first steps towards personal growth. Today you took one step towards developing the skills and support you deserve to making a positive change in your life. I am passionate about working with pre-teens, teens, and young adults. During these special years of life, you may be flooded with ideas, feelings, and behaviors that are not easy to navigate alone. My personal philosophy is therapy is your car embarking on a journey of self-growth. You are the driver, and I am the passenger. I am here to help navigate you through difficult times but don’t worry I won’t use the emergency break unless you ask. You have the autonomy and agency to fulfill your goals no matter the obstacles. With me, you will not have to have to face those moments alone.
