I have a strong base of counseling experience working with children, and adults in a wide variety of settings.
I love my work and I am thrilled to be a part of the global community that strives to bring an effective blend of experience, expertise, clarity, concern and action to the counseling process in order to provide genuine healing and wholeness to children, young adults , adults , marriages, and families. Over the last six years or so I have learned wonderful attachment therapies like Theraplay. This model, along with different Expressive therapy approaches, and EMDR protocols, have increased my desire to continue learning to be able to integrate the different trauma-informed practice with neuroscience.

Life can be challenging. Maybe you have been feeling overwhelmed, confused, alone, stressed, sad, or stuck. Perhaps what used to help you feel better is no longer working. Maybe what brought your life purpose and meaning no longers feels aligned with the YOU of today. Maybe you are having difficulty connecting with the people most important to you. Know that whatever it is you are feeling as you read this, it is valid, your experience is valid, and you have the capacity for change. I invite anyone seeking support in their lives and have experience working with adults from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

I primarily work with adults that are experiencing anxiety, depression, adjustment to life changes, and those seeking to explore and change unhealthy thought patterns and behaviors.

I enjoy working with adults across the lifespan who struggle with anxiety and depression.
Your experiences and perceptions are real because they're yours. When you feel a certain way, it is significant, even if others may suggest that what's on your mind is "really not that big of a deal." If your instinct is telling you something doesn't feel right, you deserve a chance to explore that. I want to explore those ideas with you, and provide a space where you feel comfortable talking about whatever you want in a safe and judgment-free zone.

People seek out a counselor who can guide them--or their child--past their struggles to a better life. They want to get better sooner and stay better longer. For over 20 years, I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of adults , children and adolescents move past problems and achieve their goals --and to make those improvements stick. Some clients face coping with frustration, depression, anxiety, or relationship and family problems. For others, it's dealing with transitions such as divorce, loss and grief, school or relationship challenges, medical problems or job loss. And clients deserve great service.

I provide culturally responsive individual psychotherapy to adults of all ages. I work collaboratively with clients from a relational/psychodynamic framework, but I am also skilled working in a more structured way to address specific and short-term goals. Above all, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the central element in treatment. The relationship is the medium by which therapy helps clients foster a strong sense of self-worth and identity, increase happiness and life satisfaction, improve the quality of their relationships, and understand their feelings, motives, and behavior.

I enjoy working with adults and adolescents struggling with issues related to self-esteem, relationships, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and difficult life transitions.
We all deserve to be happy and fulfilled in our relationships. However, healthy and meaningful relationships do not come without work. Whether it is with your intimate partner, friends, family or coworkers, the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our mental health. I help individuals understand how their past experiences, sometimes traumatic, impact their present struggles related to anxiety, stress or depression, and often interfere with their ability to cultivate and maintain relationship satisfaction.

I offer individual counseling to adults and emerging adults .
Do you refer to yourself as a “people pleaser?” Ever find yourself doing something out of obligation because you have trouble saying “no?” Situations like this can feel very confusing and upsetting. Many people struggle with identifying and expressing their needs and wants. Oftentimes this leads to difficulty setting boundaries, balancing work/life, and experiencing feelings of resentment. Creating your own story is one of the most empowering things you can do. Therapy helps you explore your own values and beliefs so you can learn what feels meaningful to you.

I have a great deal of experience helping young adults and professionals with life transitions.
I am a firm believer that making the decision to address your issues takes a great deal of courage and bravery. Many of us come from circumstances or environments that encourage us to push through pain by burying it, outworking it, or avoiding it. While these coping skills help us to survive, they don't necessarily encourage us to thrive. As a therapist with psychodynamic training and extensive life coaching experience, it is important to me that our sessions focus on identifying where core issues are coming from, encourage collaborative problem solving, as well as create space for intentional goal setting.
