I believe that at the core of productive therapy is transparent, candid, and empathetic engagement between the therapist and client. Whether tackling depression, anxiety, or other complicated issues, honesty and safety are paramount. Thus, I strive to cultivate an open and trusting relationship wherein the client can be vulnerable and introspective with themselves and me. I facilitate this relationship by providing a safe and understanding setting that allows clients to be their truest self while simultaneously accomplishing their mental health related goals. Irrespective of an individual’s identity or the issues they are struggling to better comprehend, I will help foster a space where you are seen and heard.
I curate my approach to therapy from relational modalities and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), focusing largely on reframing distortions, and developing self-acceptance and healthy and appropriate strategies towards self-improvement. I believe everybody has the potential to be the best and happiest versions of themselves, and having the tools and environment to manifest that desire leads to positive outcomes.
I’m currently completing my Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling at Manhattan College. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Miami University, where I focused largely on social psychology and studying human behavior and interactions. I look forward to developing an earnest and honest relationship with all my clients and helping them maximize their potential.
