About

Are you, a family member, or a friend experiencing emotional difficulty? Are you anxious, depressed, feeling unfulfilled or lonely? If you answered yes to any of these questions I am here to support you! I utilize an array of therapeutic approaches to assist my clients in creating wellness. I specialize in systems and family dynamics. I have a strong love for community and cultural matters and I prioritize cultural awareness. I strive to support my clients in embracing their strengths, acknowledging their areas of growth, and creating a life desired.
