When people go through the changes of life, there comes a time when they may start to compare themselves to others, images of their future self, and even their past lives. They see who they used to be; vibrant and free. Or they see who they want to be but are unable to get there due to familial, mental, emotional, financial, physical or spiritual circumstances. They might even need to learn the ability to forgive, to learn from past experiences, to let go, and to rid themselves of emotional and mental baggage. I believe that I possess the skillset to help those people along in their journey.
Change is never easy, but it is the only thing that is constant in life. I am passionate about helping adolescents and adults get through this transition, so that they can take ownership of their lives and work towards achievable goals.
The stages of change are not linear and will require much motivation, but with determination, slow and steady will win the race of self-actualization.
Though life changes can be unpredictable and often uncontrollable, you might not have anyone to turn to or share your experiences with. But nonetheless, I am here for you. I will validate your experiences, act as a facilitator, and help to guide you towards your future goals. I want you to have control of your life by creating your own achievable goals and working towards them. I will pay attention to you and help facilitate a counseling relationship that is of trust, respect, and understanding.
I graduated with a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of South Florida. I am currently a Foreign medical graduate with a future goal to become a psychiatrist. My educational background and past experiences have allowed me to gain the necessary techniques and skills to better help my clients. My past experiences involved working with individuals, couples, and families who suffered from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, co-occurring diagnosis, and relationship distress in couples and families. I had the opportunity to work in a long-term residential facility, group home, short-term acute care, outpatient, and detox. My counseling style is very eclectic where I pull techniques from different counseling styles to best fit my client’s needs. For example, Solution-focused brief therapy, humanistic approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing are some of the techniques I utilize. I am looking forward to working with you, so where shall we begin?
