About

Your everyday choices reflect the meaning you are attempting to bring to your life. Big or small, they are rooted in your in past, hopes, desires, needs, dreams, etc. There are times, however, when you experience trauma, severe life stressors, or times of crisis that impact your ability to make healthy choices producing confusion, fear, anger, and sadness. You may even feel as if it is a struggle to find ease, happiness, and peace. The journey to be more self-aware, to bring more contentment and joy in your life and to connect with others in healthy ways is the destination that you and I will strive towards.
My therapeutic approach attempts to make known your deeply personal intentions and needs, often unconscious, that influences your behavior and life choices. I will sit with you in your confusion or suffering as we explore, together, the deeper meaning of your choices with empathy, support, compassion while affirming your human dignity and value.
I'm humbled and honored if you choose me to join you on your personal journey of deeper self-awareness and self-fulfillment. I will come into your journey not knowing all the answers but having been blessed with a life filled with diverse experiences, learned wisdom, and longevity that will help you to uncover your answers hidden in your heart and soul.
