Finding the right therapist can be scary. It takes a lot of courage to begin the search and build trust. I value this process and am honored to be a part of this sacred therapeutic relationship. I believe every individual has the strength within to grow and change. Having a safe space to reflect, learn, and explore can be helpful in the journey. I offer a safe space to work with individuals through life stress, transitions, painful experiences, & overall wellness.

Working though life challenges inspired me to pursue my specialty working with self esteem, trauma, and anxiety. I aim to empower clients and create a safe space for process and change.

In my practice, I have worked with many clients of various cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. I come from a multi-cultural family and have a passion for working with millennials, teens, and women. My approach is strength based with a touch of real life humor. Let's connect and uncover your fullest potential.
