If you are here, you are considering healing, changing, or learning about yourself, which is something we can navigate together. I have experience working with relational issues, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders, among other issues. Clients describe me as patient, flexible, and funny, and have often commented on feeling “seen” and “understood.” In session, I like to “follow you” wherever you want to take me so that we can navigate this process at your own pace.

I am a bilingual master's-level counselor working toward licensure and I am currently taking on new clients. I love working with individuals, couples, and teens. One of my favorite things about the process of therapy is getting to know you, your past experiences, and your goals in hopes that you might get to know more about yourself and the attachments we have created with those around us. I offer a warm and safe environment where we can address sensitive topics at a comfortable pace. I believe the client is the expert of their own life and we will work collaboratively to address your goals toward change.

My goal is to support you in developing skills and strategies to help your relationships be healthier and happier, not only with others, but with yourself.

My style is collaborative. The relationship between the client and therapist guides the work we will do together. By using a non-judgmental attitude and creating a safe place for you to feel heard, growth and insight can take place. Many times we find ourselves caught in patterns that no longer serve our well-being; sometimes it takes someone outside our lives to help us see how to change these patterns. Often rooted in the story of our past, these patterns keep us stuck in outdated ways of thinking. Therapy can be the process of liberation from these stuck patterns, but it does take a willingness to be uncomfortable.

Life often seems to move so quickly, barely allowing a chance to take in all that we have experienced. Especially in times of change or intense grief, you may want a space to process your experiences-both the mundane moments and major life-changing events-in order to understand what is going on inside. Therapy can be the perfect space to sort through your experiences, search for meaning and understanding, and discern the path forward that is right for you.

Dealing with anxiety, and depression, can be debilitating and cause difficulties with everyday tasks and relationships. Traumatic experiences can make us fearful of living, and daily experiences can sometimes confirm the lies we begin to believe about ourselves. I would love to help you build strong relationships, feel like you have the energy to take on the day and live a life that is not centered around the stresses and trauma you have experienced.

I aim to create a trusting environment where you feel safe to explore your stressors and emotions, as well as practice and implement strategies to elicit change.

They require a secure space to develop coping mechanisms, feel empowered, and restore their well-being.

I’m a person in long term recovery. What that means to me is that I have been substance free since July 13th, 2016. My previous battles with depression, anxiety, and self-medicating turned substance use disorder gave me a perspective that has motivated a purpose within the counseling field. I believe the you must own your story, otherwise your story will own you. We will own it by looking at your past and reframing it into a more positivist perspective. The therapeutic relationship is a priority and ideally, we will become a collaborative team.
