I have a deep passion for helping people discover their power in the face of life’s adversities. Stress presents itself in a number of ways which impact the mind, body, and spirit. As a psychotherapist, I am dedicated to an integrative whole-person approach to wellness and healing. I am particularly interested in healing the emotional/spiritual wounds of internalized racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of oppression. I work to empower others to overcome feeling stuck and controlled by distressing emotions, unhealthy behaviors, and painful past experiences.

Every child needs a nurturing environment that allows them to grow into productive adults; however, from childhood into adulthood there are times that adversity presents itself. The road can become rocky and sometimes stop with no apparent direction in which to travel. When the road is too bumpy and travel is difficult, a therapist can help by serving as guide and aid and walk with you until the road is safe again to travel on your own. I look forward to being apart of your journey.

My approach to counseling is that we are our one minds, body, soul, and spirit - all within us is connected - we are one. Becoming reconnected is the process of returning to your whole self, back home to who we are designed to be. Although we cannot erase the harm done to us, we can reclaim and reconnect back to our original sense of self. Counseling is a process of coming back home to you. I am a fan of allowing you to guide our processes of coming home to you. My approach to therapy is an embodied, interpersonal and narrative (story) focused.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative relationship between client and therapist, and that clients are the experts of their own lives.

Expression, in all of its forms, is empowerment. Being able to trust someone and feel safe with them is instrumental in amplifying expression. This is why it is important to find a therapist that is a good fit for you. Clients may carry experiences that they do not have the words for — and that’s okay. As an art therapist, I use the creative process to support clients in connecting with themselves and build self-confidence and compassion. I specialize in working with survivors of trauma and individuals who are facing challenges related to self-worth, depression, anxiety, family conflict, and interpersonal difficulties.
