outreach and stigma reduction surrounding mental health care
Approach to Therapy:
I use a strength-based approach during therapy to collaborate with clients to ensure therapy focuses on what is most relevant to the client. I use an integrative model, utilizing modalities including CBT, psychodynamic and relational approaches. I approach therapy through a multicultural lens to examine different facets of my clients' identities to get a fuller picture of why an issue may be present. While recognizing hardships clients are experiencing, I aim to use our brief time-frame to find ways to cope and begin to heal while making sure the student receives the resources they need moving forward.
Approach to Wellness:
Family and friends are a blessing and critical fountain of wellness for me. One of my favorite approaches to self care is through great stories on the radio, television, or books. Lastly, trying out a new art form, or revisiting a favorite is personally always uplifting.
