In addition to my clinical work I am a trainer with Triple P America, teaching clinicians how to work with parents struggling with behavior problems with their children and work with service members and their families as a Military Family and Lifestyle Counselor.
The strongest person is the one who knows when to ask for help. Everyone struggles, but why do some people handle life's challenges so well? My goal is to help my clients have a happy and fulfilling life. What this means is clearly different from person to person. My aim is to identify the behaviors that are keeping this from happening, implement these changes, practice them in real life and moving on. I am a short term-solution focused therapist. The more you do outside of therapy, the faster you can achieve the changes you desire.

I've worked with relative caregivers, military families, and foster families.
It's great that you are taking an important step to reach out for support. Over the years of working with clients I have learned that many people experience hardship, stress, conflict, and/or pain during their lifetime that they find difficult to navigate on their own. Reaching out for support is a healthy and positive step! I know that every person's story is unique and I value getting to know each client individually so that I can provide tailored and meaningful therapy. It would be an honor to partner with you on your journey! Please note that I have moved to an all telehealth practice using a secure video platform.

My experience and areas of speciality include but is not limited to the treatment of anxiety disorders, mood disorders, relationship issues, challenges of military life, self-esteem, and emotional/physical wellness.
"Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness, it's the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again." If you are seeking help, often times it can be an overwhelming and humbling experience. Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with and at ease can be challenging, but once it is a good match, you will be able to overcome your obstacles. Remember, you are the expert in your own life, and being in therapy we will improve some aspect of it. With empathy, trust, accountability and respect, we will work together to see the light.

As a first generation minority from a military family, I understand the stigma of receiving professional help.
Are you struggling to balance your work life, family, and relationships? Do you find yourself overwhelmed with worry, feeling stuck, down, or depleted of energy? Maybe you are looking to find ways to heal from a loss or manage a life transition. Perhaps your levels of anxiety and depression are unbearable and you are trying to relieve feelings of discontentment or cultural tension. Whether you are a working professional, parent, veteran, or someone seeking meaningful support, you don’t have to face these challenges alone. If you want to renew your sense of self and rejuvenate your overall well-being, then you are in the right place.

You're tired. If it's not one thing it's another. You don't know what to do. The adolescent years are so hard. You just don't know how to help your child. They struggle so much. Or maybe it's your marriage. It just plain hard. Was marriage supposed to be like this? We just can't seem to get along. You wonder, if healing is even possible, you've been going through this for so long. You ask yourself, Is something wrong with me? I just can't seem to be happy. I'm afraid or anxious all the time. In each of these scenarios, you wonder if there is any hope.

Sometimes life experiences leave us feeling overwhelmed or hopeless and we find that the ways we usually cope are not helping. Sometimes our personal journey involves difficult, seemingly impossible crises or losses. Sometimes we try to manage emotions with activities that help us feel better for a short time but then the cost starts to outweigh the benefits. I believe we all go through times like this when we are tired of struggling. The path towards recovering from these experiences seems more doable when we are able to find a renewed motivation and clear goals towards change.

You seem fine on the outside, but inside you feel you are not good enough, a failure, never enough. You want to be able to go through the day without feeling anxious, overwhelmed, depressed or all on your own. You're your own worst critic. You don't want to need alcohol or pot or comfort food to cope. You want to be able to handle your emotions better. You're wondering if life will ever get better, or if this is as good as it gets. Deep down, you feel guilty or ashamed. Social events may be difficult for you. Maybe you've been through a trauma (abuse, car accident, relationship breakup, etc.) and are having trouble moving on.
