About

Life can feel overwhelming at times. You might be experiencing a crisis, having relationship issues with your family, your partner, and or friend. You might have experienced some trauma from the past or recently and it's affecting your well-being at this moment. If you do not feel like you can be yourself, it's time to reach out for help. You might need some help and someone that can really listen and guide you through mental distress. I will help you with your relationship issues with your partner, family, friend or child. I will work with you to heal, cope, and achieve harmony.
I am a multicultural client-centered therapist trained in EMDR. I tailor my therapeutic approach based on individual needs, personalities, and cultural backgrounds. With some assistance, I believe that you have the power to figure out your wants, needs, and desires. I am here to walk by your side, support, and guide you to the best version of you.
Whatever challenges you are experiencing in life, I am here to listen and provide care. Reaching out when you truly need help can be one of the hardest things to do. If you want to see if I can help, I do a free fifteen minute consultation so you can see if we are a good fit.
