My personal philosophy is that change is possible and my approach to therapy is through this optimistic lens. This is the vision that I hope to share with my clients. With a background in physical rehabilitation and mindfulness, I appreciate how a multi-faceted and eclectic approach to therapy can promote healing.
My objectives in mental health counseling are to encourage clients to become curious about how their mind works by using a Person-Centered Approach and recognizing people’s inherent motivation for positive change.
I incorporate principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness to challenge clients' behavioral, emotional, and thought patterns that are preventing them from reaching their unique life goals.
Therapy is a collaborative process. I work with my clients in a mutually respectful way, through issues of depression, anxiety, and chronic pain to create changes for themselves.
I am also a licensed occupational therapist. Currently I'm in the final stages of completing an additional master's degree in mental health counseling. I hold a master’s degree in occupational therapy from New York University and a bachelor’s degree from McGill University.
