Take a breath – go ahead. The process of finding a therapist can feel daunting and overstimulating, much like the world in general. Bear in mind that you don’t have to commit to a particular person right away. What’s most important is that you feel safe, supported, and heard. It might take a bit to find someone with whom you resonate, so I invite you to take the time and space you need. Our society conditions us to feel a sense of urgency, and it’s helpful to remind ourselves that we are more than our productivity, and we are more than our labels. As a person and professional, I celebrate diversity and multiculturalism of all kinds.

I am also here to support family, friends, and other support persons with loved ones diagnosed with neurocognitive impairments (Alzheimer's/Dementia).
It sounds counterintuitive; that a negative event can bestow a positive outcome. Inside our mind, are negative and positive thoughts, opposing forces. When these poles reconcile or reach an agreement, this creates a balance - a common ground. With the right approach, I teach how to use this bad experience as a stepping stone to uncover your glorious potential - your path to recovery. I also offer Clinical Supervision for those final steps completing practicum or obtaining hours for licensure.
