About

We release negativity to gain positivity. We let go of past hurts to accept future healing. We say goodbye to toxic people to say hello to healthy relationships. We depart from harmful places to enter into safe havens. We refuse to repeat mistakes to progress towards fulfillment. We choose a better path because we possess choice. You are welcome to start your journey toward wholeness within yourself, and among family and friends. Let's collaborate together to develop your authentic self and purpose in life.
Therapy is person-centered; therefore, treatment is determined by the needs of the clients. My preferred modes of treatment are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Attachment.
Ascendance to the summit of wholeness is a journey and process. A journey that is uniquely yours to create and shape your destiny. It's your shoes, your steps, your success.
