Hey there!

My treatment method is a partnership and multi-faceted approach towards patient-centered care. With the support from the collaborative treatment team at SokyaHealth, my desire is to provide client specific care, as each individual is unique. The stigma associated with mental health illness is one of the biggest barriers presenting to mental health providers. The brain is just as susceptible as any organ to illness, and there should be no shame in receiving treatment. It takes a courageous person to seek help and take the first steps in making a change.
