My goal is to support individuals in navigating the challenges of life and promoting positive mental health. I believe that every individual has the strength and resilience within themselves to overcome difficulties, but sometimes, it can be hard to see it. That's where I come in. I use a combination of techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness practices, ancient stoic philosophy, and Eastern wisdom to help individuals access their inner strength and resilience. I strive to create a warm, non-judgmental, and compassionate environment where you can feel safe to explore and work through your challenges. I believe in working together to find the best way to support your unique needs. Let's start this journey together to discover your inner strengths and build a better future.

Treatment Approach

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
Approach Description: My approach to therapy is an evidence-based, holistic one that blends the ancient wisdom of Eastern philosophy with modern, Western techniques. I utilize mindfulness, visualization and stoic practices, along with cognitive-behavioral therapy, to guide clients on a journey towards inner peace and well-being. With mindfulness, we will focus on the present moment and develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Through visualization, we will create vivid mental images to help cultivate positive emotions and states of mind. And through stoic practices, we will explore a practical framework to navigate the ups and downs of life and to cultivate inner peace and resilience. I believe in an empathetic and compassionate approach that prioritizes the client's needs and goals. I will walk with you, listen, and guide you on a journey of self-discovery and understanding. Together, we will explore the underlying causes of your struggles and develop effective strategies to improve your mood and foster well-being. My ultimate goal is to empower you to take control of your mental health and to help you build a brighter, more fulfilling future for yourself. Through this journey, you will learn to let go of negative thoughts and emotions, and to find inner peace and tranquility in the present moment.
