  1. How would you describe your personality?
    I am a calm, cool and collected person. I am very much go with the flow but I will always stand up and advocate for the people in my life.

  2. How would you best describe your style, interventions used, area of focus as a therapist:
    As a therapist, my goal is to provide a space for you to explore who you are and peel back the onion while also employing interventions from CBT (i.e thought challenging techniques) and mindfulness interventions. I generally focus on helping someone get unstuck from their minds, explore their core beliefs, challenge unhelpful thinking patterns and take a more non-judgmental stance on the struggles in their lives. I hope to work with you on a path where you rediscover the strengths you may have lost along the way on this journey we call life. Through active dialogue and sprinkle of coping skills, my goal is to help you bring you back to yourself.
  3. What do you love to do for mindfulness, self-care, or in your free time?
    I love curling up with a good book, taking walks on the boardwalk, and trying new experiences whether that means traveling around the world or switching up my routine. I also enjoy yoga and going to the gym
