“Life is a journey to be experienced, not a problem to be solved”, said by Winnie the Pooh. Therapy is a journey, and everyone’s path will be different.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who enjoys working with children, teenagers, and adults. I received both of my master’s degrees at University of Pennsylvania in 2016 and 2017. I specialize in anxiety, depression, mood disorders, anger management, PTSD, and helping individuals to navigate various obstacles in life. I strive to develop an integrative and holistic strategy to individualize client’s needs with several different approaches to help them reach their goals.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in order to help clients set clear and realistic goals to work on changing maladaptive thoughts and behavioral patterns. I implement a Person-Centered approach that allows my clients and I to work as a team and establish a trusting relationship. Lastly, there are elements of Strength-Focused Therapy to ensure that my clients can harvest progress and success on their own and develop confidence that they can take into every aspect of their lives. Last but not least, I like to add an emphasis on multiculturalism to each approach to help clients from different racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds process and work on life struggles in a way that respects their cultural values and beliefs.
Congratulations on making your first step to start your journey of change! Tell me your concerns, questions, and preferences so we can get on board.
