About My Clients

It's just not working for you any more. You have made it this far in life; maybe you have a good job, got to a good school, had some good relationships, but things don't feel right. Worry, stress, fear, self-doubt, procrastination, and a lack of direction are weighting heavily on you. This is impacting your health, work, and/or relationships. You try to ignore and avoid these painful thoughts or feelings as best you can, but it not longer seems to work and you are ready to try something new.

My Background and Approach

Imagine a life where you feel at peace with yourself instead of at war. Fear, stress, pain, anxiety, and/or depression don't dictate your every move. In this life you take on challenges, build authentic relationships, and feel confident. You can have that life and I can help. I use effective evidence-based tools. Many of my clients see results in three months or less. My approach is warm, authentic, lighthearted, and direct. Booking a session is easy on my secure 24 hour scheduling portal located on my website (click on the website link) or call me. I employee skills from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as Mindfulness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I make an effort to understand my privilege and feel strongly in supporting issue related to Black Lives Matter, LGBT rights, and addressing islamophobia. This comes from my personal experience of working with many colleagues and clients from diverse cultural and racial backgrounds and hearing from them their strengths and struggles. .
