May works with clients to apply healthy ways of coping with their stress, thoughts, and feelings. She loves to help clients decode the root of what causes their emotions, learn to take better care of themselves, get a better grip on life, and make choices that suits their needs and soul. The ultimate goal is to live your best life despite the circumstances. Also, you want to be proud of who you see in the mirror every day.

May has offered counseling to assess their current condition, needs, strengths, and weaknesses. Her therapeutic approach is based on the individual and family needs. May utilizes different approaches such as Mindfulness-based therapy, Strength-based therapy, CBT, DBT, Motivational-based therapy, and, but not limited to, Emotion-focused therapy.
