Individual Therapy

I conduct a comprehensive assessment, formulate individual treatment plan, evaluate the effectiveness of treatment , and make appropriate adjustments.

Individual therapy is the most effective method to achieve treatment goals. It provides a safe environment for clients to reveal their struggles and release emotions.

I provide in person, virtual and phone therapy.

To promote the mental health well-being of children and adolescents parents must engage in learning to understand children's development and how to effectively communicate with them.
