"I believe that humans yearn to live in right relationship with ourselves, the earth, and all beings. We yearn to live a life in which we can fully accept ourselves, connect meaningfully with others, and experience true belonging within our communities and the larger world. My intention as a practitioner is to honor and nurture this internal yearning, in order to help you build an external world that mirrors these values and visions. In order to build a more beautiful world and life, we must first heal from the past traumas and obstacles that have disrupted our sense of safety and interconnection in the world around us."

"I founded Be Love Community Counseling to provide safe, healing space for people that have been oppressed, marginalized or have an identity outside of the "dominant culture." Historic trauma and past hurts may show up as depression, anxiety, anger management issues, low self-esteem, underachievement, oppositional behaviors etc. You may think that something is wrong with you while what you're experiencing may actually be a result of something that has happened to you or your ancestors. Therapy is empowering as you may increase awareness about what is keeping you from freedom to live the life you desire."
