About My Clients

My clients are individuals who understand that you can not heal until you acknowledge the areas that need healing. My clients are people looking for a safe and warm space to open up and feel comfortable showing their most vulnerable sides. They are looking for concrete skills and ways to improve their overall wellbeing so that they are not just moving through life but actually thriving. My goal as a therapist is to have each person I see find healing and empowerment.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist dedicated to building a trusting environment for her clients to foster better self-esteem, emotional regulation, and self-awareness. Skilled in providing groups, couples, individual, and family therapy, I have training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). My specialties include minority stress, victims of crime, issues of grief/loss, anxiety, depression, boundaries/self-worth, relationship difficulties, and trauma. In addition to my clinical passion in helping individuals live a life full of purpose, I am committed to social justice reform and strive to provide marginalized communities with quality mental health care in efforts to break the widespread cycles of intergenerational trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I don't believe that there is a limit to human capacity. Going through my own therapy I know how hard change and growth can be but I also know its even harder staying stuck in a position that no longer serves you. Naturally I am one of the most down to earth and non-judgmental people you may meet. I don't discriminate against anyone.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
