As a therapist, I work closely with each client to identify their strengths, patterns in relationships, and the motivation to change. My clients are individuals aged 12 and above, with a special focus on teens and young adults. My expertise lies in assisting those who experience suicidal ideation and self-harm/non-suicidal self-injury, in addition to providing support for depression, anxiety, body image, life transitions, and identity concerns.
My treatment approach is collaborative and team-oriented, with the client taking an active role in setting goals and developing their own treatment plan. I follow a person-centered, strengths-based approach and frequently integrate techniques from Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) during sessions.
Prior to my career as a therapist, I worked in case management and vocational rehabilitation, serving both students and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Although I do not practice Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, I have received training as a behavior technician and work with individuals on the autism spectrum and those with intellectual disabilities.
