Hi there! My name is Destiny and I’m glad you’re here. Now listen up, I know that life can sometimes feel like a never-ending dumpster fire. And I’ve lived enough life to know that sometimes, life feels really difficult. Although it can sometimes feel like it—you’re not alone. Have you felt riddled by anxiety or depression? Do you feel like you need help navigating through tough times, some life transitions or need some accountability to help get yourself back on track? Whether you’re trying to piece yourself together after a loss or just trying to keep your head above water to handle tough times, I’m here for you and I get it.
I'm a seasoned therapist with a wealth of experience in guiding people towards mental and emotional well-being. I'm here to help you overcome anxiety, strengthen your relationships, better manage your stress & anger, heal past wounds, develop healthy boundaries & give you the tools to better deal with all of life's challenges.
I believe that therapy should be tailored to you & your needs. I believe that therapy should feel genuine, trusting & authentic. Life is too short for just 'okay' therapy. I value openness & honesty in my clients. I strive to create a laid-back environment where you feel most comfortable to open up & be your most authentic self. Ready? Let's do it together

I work with clients who may be struggling with anxiety, depression or relationship issues. We will first get to know more about you and delve deeper into the issues that are currently presenting itself. We will create a plan together to address these concerns. Most of my clients begin to gradually gain clarity on the issues, decrease symptoms & increase their ability to manage those symptoms.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Acceptance & Commitment Therapy in my practice. However, I tailor my sessions to the client and strongly believe that therapy is not a 'one size fits all.' I use trauma-informed, client-centered approaches to therapy, focusing on thought processes to help target emotions. I ensure that my client feels comfortable & heard throughout the process.
