What I’m excited to bring to Fitcy Health members:

I like to take an integrative approach with counseling; I don’t believe in a one size fits all stance with mental wellbeing, since we are all individuals.  Although I am trained in CBT which is evidence-based and structured, I like to implement a more collaborative approach consisting of psychodynamic elements as well because our earlier experiences absolutely shape who we are. My main goal for my work is to provide a safe, confidential and open space for the therapeutic alliance to naturally build and progress.
