About My Clients

Although we come from many different walks of life, our journeys do not have to be navigated through alone. My goal is to work together with you in discovering who you were, who you are now, & who and where you want to be. This requires gaining an understanding of our past & how it has shaped us. In this journey of self-discovery, I hope to provide my clients with a non-judgmental and supportive safe space while focusing on developing genuine trust and connection.

My Background and Approach

My experience includes working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships issues, self-esteem issues, and mood disorders. I have worked with children, teens, families, and couples to learn to communicate better with one another, develop healthy boundaries, and create a harmonious home environment. In the last ten years of working in the mental health field, I have worked in not only higher levels of care with individuals struggling with chronic and severe mental illness, but also in outreach and prevention programs with mild to at-risk populations. I am a culturally sensitive therapist with a Strengths Based, Psychodynamic, and Cognitive Behavioral approach. I am grateful to support you in your journey towards personal growth and finding balance, self-compassion, and fulfillment.
