About My Clients

For some of us, it may seem daunting to speak with someone about our personal lives and struggles. You might feel hopeless, overwhelmed, or stressed. You are not alone. With so much going on in the world during this time, reaching out for help is a brave and powerful step in your healing journey. Even if you may struggle to see your worth today, I'm here to remind you that you deserve peace, self-love, and happiness. I can help you get there!

My Background and Approach

I have a passion for working with BIPOC & LGBTQ+ youth who are struggling with self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I specialize in art therapy where free self-expression is always encouraged. We use the creative process to explore emotions, reduce anxiety, increase self-esteem, and resolve other psychological conflicts.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I’m super approachable, caring, and down-to-earth. I love creating peaceful & healing spaces for myself and others. Sometimes, we just need to be silly, laugh, play, and create no matter how old we are. I look forward to helping brave individuals navigate their worlds, advocate for themselves, and build their self-esteem for a more fulfilling future.
