Our practice specializes in working with individuals and couples who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as well LGBTQIA2+.
Greetings, Beloved! For so long, you’ve longed to be seen and heard, respected, and feel valued for what you are--not just what you can do. You’ve been so busy with work, family, and social commitments that you’ve had to ignore the big pains and small hurts just to do all that needed to be done. It’s taken a toll though, even if nobody else can see it. But you’ve decided that it’s okay to prioritize your own health and wellbeing. You need and deserve more support, and this is your time to receive it. You’re ready to face the old wounds that have haunted you and to finally work through the issues that have kept you stuck.

My counseling philosophy is based on an empathic understanding of the individual's circumstances and challenges impacting their ability to function in life. In conjunction with employing traditional therapy, my approach is holistic. Incorporating greenery into your life is known to provide positive benefits for those struggling with depression, anxiety and addiction. Research has shown that plants have a positive therapeutic influence on the human experience. Just like us, plants are living and breathing vessels that help clean the toxins out of life. Let me provide you a GreenSpace to process what is causing your discomfort.

Parenting a child who has temper tantrums is difficult. You may find yourself frequently correcting your child for acting before he/she thinks about what is going on. Raising a child who is diagnosed with autism, developmental delays, or intellectual delays can be hard to manage. Your child may excel at school but then struggles with worry beyond what is appropriate for the situation back at home. Not to mention the worry or depression you may be feeling as the parent trying to juggle everything. It is time to find the help you need.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!** Living with a chronic illness can be hard. You are currently struggling to push through pain and fatigue every day. Unexpected changes in your body brings on high levels of stress. Oftentimes you feel hopeless and sad, asking, “Why can’t my body be normal?!” You keep thoughts to yourself, for fear that others will see you as a burden. Social events and personal plans are a thing of the past, because you cancel often for feeling sick. You think “no one understands what I’m going through.” "Wearing a mask" gets you through, but you wish you could be yourself, feel better and connect with others.
