The services I offer address issues that interfere with a more genuine and fulfilling lifestyle including: addiction, co-dependence, family and relationship problems, symptoms associated with various Mood, Anxiety, Psychotic, and Personality Disorders, difficulties with transition, challenges acculturating, depression, anxiety, mood instability, low self-esteem, trauma, and problems communicating.
Confronting the challenges that accompany our lives can be daunting and result in a deviation from the expectations we have of ourselves and those with whom we interact. I am here to assist you in the process to heighten awareness and gain more meaningful and fulfilling experiences in your life through psychotherapy. I utilize the DAFT (Depth & Freedom Therapy) approach that combines various counseling theories and techniques, philosophical tenets, and spiritual teachings to collaborate with clients in order to strengthen individual identity while considering the impact of past experiences, modern day socio-cultural influences, and current personal issues.

OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family , career) with strength and confidence.

I work with those struggling to live with the effects of trauma and challenging life experiences who are desiring to work through past and present family issues in the midst of anxiety, depression, and other issues such as healing from abuse, assault, and neglect.
I am passionate about supporting women and teens facing the challenges of life in a way that helps them find sustained change. It is hard to live in this world and not question if our bodies, stories, and voices are “good enough.” We wonder if it is possible for us to be okay with who we are, and make different choices than we’ve made in the past. We often make decisions that are rooted in insecurity, leaving us trapped in anxiety. I value helping women learn to understand and respect their whole story on their own terms. Together we can define your own goals for change.

Relationships can be wonderful at the best of times, and downright painful at the worst of times. How well do you understand your reactions in these distressed moments? Your partner's? Do you feel out of control? Do you feel disconnected? These are just two ways that people can respond to relational distress. I can help you to slow down in these moments to help you express yourself in a way that is congruent, and most importantly, in a way that lets you be heard by your partner, family , co-workers, and yourself.

Life is sometimes unexpectedly difficult and suffering can be inevitable. However, how you respond to life circumstances can drastically change your ability to enjoy life. I have worked with many people who have believed in lies about themselves after a traumatic incident or because toxic people have told them horrible things about themselves. These lies can be crippling and further result in problems with anxiety, depression, addictions, lack of sleep, school related difficulties, stress, anger issues, parenting difficulties, communication difficulties, relational issues, family problems, job dissatisfaction and much more. I provide different perspectives that encourage personal healing.
