"***NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I get it, you’re busy! Between work, family obligations, and errands, you barely have time to breathe, let alone time to care for yourself. You feel overwhelmed and find yourself wondering “Is this the life I signed up for?” You spend all of your time caring for others and you constantly put yourself last. You feel like no one sees you."

"Hi!! Let me start by saying I understand what dysfunction looks like. Your family's dysfunction WILL NOT scare me! ( I promise.) Question, Are you struggling?? Now take a long deep breath....("no, for real....take a deep breath.") Therapy is self-care! Invest into your best asset.......YOU! You don't have to do this alone. It is okay NOT to be okay! Question? Do you feel like you have tried everything you know to do? It's time to exhale! (take another deep breath.) You act like you have it all together, but it's just that-an act. "

"It is my belief that we are all trying to live meaningful lives in which we are able to express our talents and abilities and make deeper connections with those who are most important to us. The type of psychotherapy I provide offers a safe and accepting environment where obstacles that prevent a fuller life are explored and understood. A good psychotherapy outcome is one where a person experiences greater self-acceptance and greater self-love. My goal is to help each person see and understand the fuller picture of his or her life to be in a position of choosing to live more fully."

"Cultural issues sometimes get in the way of wanted change and emotional relief. You’ve tried expressing your concerns to loved ones, but you’ve been told "pray about it." There are times when you also struggle with being the "only one" at work, yet you love your job and don't want to leave. How many times have you been told you are a "strong woman" knowing you cannot take on another responsibility? You realize you’re struggling in silence, and the symptoms of anger, anxiety and sadness are becoming progressively worse. You want to feel empowered and motivated to change? Do you know why?
