I truly believe each individual is the expert on their own life and trust that through treatment, they will learn more about themselves and gain confidence as they contribute in their healing process. My vision for therapy is to aid each client in gaining awareness about who they are and how they came to be with an empathic and client centered approach.

I have worked with client's from all ethnic backgrounds and have experience in working with adults, children and families. Much of my training has focused on trauma informed treatment, attachment disruption and early childhood mental health issues. It has become my mission to continue to contribute to the communities that inspired me to become a therapist.

I believe that for therapy to be effective, the client must feel comfortable and safe. I highly encourage all client's to seek a therapist who is a good match for them. "It's a privilege to be able to bear witness to someone's story when they may not have had the chance to tell it before." -Lindy Alexander
