Seeking out therapy can be a difficult choice to make. It may also mean that you are ready to make some changes in your life. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck due to a stressful life event. Maybe you want to further explore some of your underlying issues or traumas. I have experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, immigration, and acculturation stress. Together, we can explore how your current choices may be connected with your past experiences or how your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are interlinked.

I view therapy as a shared journey, where I can provide guidance and support as you explore those parts of yourself that previously felt too dark or broken to reveal. My goal is for the therapy room to be sacred space where you feel valued and heard; and most importantly, where you feel safe.

I believe that balance is the key to life. When one area of your life or family is out of balance, it impacts other areas of your life and family. Therapy can help restore the balance in your life. Therapy provides an avenue for change and personal growth.

What is your story? Listening to people’s stories and being a part of their unique journey has always been my passion. The ability to share personal information is not always easy and being open to guidance may not always be natural. I strive to create a supportive environment in which this process becomes more comfortable. My professional experience is centered around working with individuals, children, adolescents and their families.

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, sad, or “stuck.” You may be struggling with a transition, such as becoming a new parent, starting a new job, coping with a loss, or adapting to life after a difficult medical diagnosis. Or, perhaps you find yourself overwhelmed by fear and negative feelings for no apparent reason at all. If any of this sounds familiar to you, residual, unprocessed feelings from the past may be holding you back from living the life you desire. At Onward Healing, we specialize in using EMDR therapy to help you heal the wounds of your past, to enrich your experience of the present, and to clear a path onward.

My work focuses on emotional and personal development, where there is space to feel, explore, find insight, and confront challenges. I have special interests in highly sensitive people (HSP) work, couples work, trauma, biracial concerns, and anxiety. I believe therapy is about building a stronger sense of self through empathy, insight and symptom relief. I will be there to provide understanding, support and a different view of the problem that makes progress attainable and installs hope. Therapy provides an opportunity to grow as a person, get through personal struggles including mental illness, and strengthen relationships.

Children face so many struggles and challenges today. Some may be experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral issues, while some may be experiencing a stressful life transition such as a move, adoption, or a loss. And yet some may be distressed without a known stressor. I provide a safe space for children to explore their struggles and identify attainable solutions.

Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us. I truly believe that we all have the power to grow and heal within us; sometimes we just need a little guidance and specialized tools to get started.
