Feeling stuck in a web of stress, frustration, anxiety, hurt, depression , and loneliness can be difficult and unsettling. Like a gas gauge, it is important to identify what empties us and what fuels us. With understanding, knowledge, and humor, I assist my clients in identifying what empties them, such as stresses, worries, roadblocks, and other means of "stuck-ness." We also explore what fuels us and fills us, such as change, self-care, acceptance, balance, empowerment, and new beginnings.

I specialize in, but am not limited to, substance abuse, process addictions, mood disorders (anxiety/ depression ), codependence, women's issues, and life transitions.
I have always held a passion for the therapeutic process and understand the power of therapy. I believe the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is essential for progress to be made. There is no one size fits all therapist! I take a person centered approach as well as recognizing the need for coping skills and mindfulness. I strives to create a safe environment through authenticity, trust, directness, and of course a little humor. Through this, I believe that one can achieve a state of contentedness and peace that we are all constantly searching for.

For those with anxiety, depression , a painful past, difficulty getting organized and other issues, some options include mind-body work and an empowering model called Internal Family Systems.
Every person considering therapy is unique - you might be a parent looking for ways to manage your child's behavior, or a child with low self-esteem, someone trying to put a difficult past to rest, or struggling with anxiety and depression . What's important is that you feel a warm, safe and accepting atmosphere to begin sorting out your life, finding balance and a way forward. It's my goal to provide that place of safety and acceptance, then offer you choices of therapy models. There are many paths to change; we'll find the right fit for you.

I have worked with a variety of people, those struggling with: trauma, court involvement, behavioral challenges, community violence, anxiety, depression , disability, chronic illnesses, caregiving, and immigration.
We all deserve a space that is exclusively ours. A non-judgmental, accepting, and healing space where we can transform our minds, feelings, and experiences. A space to reflect and grow. I provide holistic therapy that is person-centered, strength-based, and trauma-informed. My approach to therapy is eclectic - I incorporate various treatment modalities and approaches into my work (mindfulness, CBT, DBT, etc.) and provide anti-oppressive, anti-racist and culturally responsive therapy. The identities you carry are seen, valued, and celebrated. I consider all aspects of your life, including the systems and environments that impact us.

Are you having a hard time connecting with your child? Are you watching them struggle on a daily basis? The challenges youth have to navigate today are unique and complicated. Most of my clients are between the ages of 6-18 and many suffer from anxiety, depression , thoughts of self harm, oppositional defiant disorder, social/educational concerns at school, etc. Typically I meet with the child and then bring in the parent for the end of session to review and talk action plans/next steps. By working collaboratively with youth and their parents, we can work together to repair relationships and develop strong bonds.

Do you feel like you think differently from others In a way that no one around you understands? Do you find that your passions and interests are not acknowledged as important by those close to you? Being told that you have to become a different person by those around you can be painful and traumatic. It can lead to anxiety, self-doubt, depression , and struggling with identity. This can be true for individuals who are neurodivergent, LGBTQIA+, and multicultural families. So by having a space to express and explore who you are can be therapeutic.

I have experience working with pre-teens, teens, adults, couples and families who are struggling with various issues including adjustment issues, anxiety, anger, bereavement, depression , self-actualization, parenting issues and couple/family conflicts.
As a culturally skilled LCPC and Professional School Counselor, I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families from all walks of life in a person-centered and collaborative environment. I believe that simply accepting that you have emotional needs that you require help with is half the battle won, and the other half is confronting them. It's my goal to work with my clients and give them the courage to address the challenges that face them - and to guide them on a path to happiness.
