I specialize in helping those within diverse communities work through challenges related to our racial and ethnic identities and give sound reflections to those facing life transitions or existential concerns. I offer help with difficulties such as depression, trauma, anxiety, and issues related to family of origin. These are amongst my core competencies; as are addressing inquiries related to faith and spirituality. Forgiveness, compassion, and patience for yourself and your growth process are key to embracing your inherent strengths and becoming a more empowered person. These are valuable tools I hope to help you cultivate.

I have worked with adults, children, teens, and families in different settings for several years now, and have supported them through a wide range of problems. I aim to widen the vista through which you perceive yourself and the world by helping you to identify and challenge limiting beliefs and patterns of thought.

I am no stranger to life's challenges, and my approach to helping you through them is in part an experiential one as opposed to a strictly theoretical one. Every person has their own unique experiences and story, and I hope to hear yours soon.
