Her therapeutic approach is collaborative and strengths-based, tailored to patient and family needs with integrations of cultural identity and various evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
