I have collaborated with a wide age range of clients in individual, couples, group and family counseling as they battled with mood, anxiety, substance use , eating disorders, and social inequality issues.
I strongly believe that human growth requires non-judgment, authenticity, and the willingness to face one's challenges head on. It is a deep passion of mine to foster a space that welcomes vulnerability and self-compassion. I believe that none of us can go through our life's journey alone. In our therapeutic relationship, it is my hope that you will never feel alone on your own path through healing. I aspire to offer guidance as clients work to acknowledge their individual strengths and positives within their lives in order to achieve their personal goals.

I love to work with passionate people, whether it manifests in anger or intensity, and help to redirect that energy into positive motivation. I place special attention on working with stress, anger management, fertility issues and with substance use disorders. My specialization in recovery work from addictions came from experience working in both inpatient settings and outpatient counseling. Recovery work taught me to stabilize crisis situations and create momentum when clients feel stuck.

Finding a safe-space to feel heard can often feel challenging and overwhelming. We each have our own unique experiences and goals, and I believe in providing a welcoming space for self-exploration. I believe that empathy, compassion, humor, understanding, and validation helps to establish meaningful relationships with clients.

My background includes working with individuals and families experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, lack of self-esteem and self-confidence, substance use , and trauma.
At times, we can find ourselves dealing with unresolved feelings of anxiety, fear, self-doubt, shame, and trauma. However we can still blossom. The therapeutic process goes beyond the individual. It must be addressed within the individual and their environment, and should include their cultural experiences, practices, and traditions, as well as their spirituality; this approach provides collective healing. I practice a holistic approach to providing therapeutic care. I integrate components of the mind, body, and spirit within therapeutic modalities to address the needs of each individual or family.

When we experience emotional pain, our attention can become very narrow and we tend to focus on all that is going wrong. This is more so when that emotional pain has its roots in trauma. It becomes even harder to widen our lens to access strength and recovery. As a trauma-focused therapist, I’ve devoted my career to helping others find their pathway to healing from childhood adversity, sexual abuse, physical and emotional abuse, and substance use issues. I use evidence-based practices to help manage anxiety, reduce stress, gain self-confidence, improve relationships, and cope with the ongoing difficulties of life.

Engaging in therapy can be a difficult decision for many people. Whether you are going through a life change, or you feel the need to put the past behind, or maybe simply wish to know yourself better, relate to your loved ones better, improve your academic or professional performance, face your fears, overcome a loss, or just wish to learn more efficient ways to deal with life stressors... these are all great reasons to engage in therapy. For me, genuineness, openness, and a non-judgmental approach are essential ingredients to connect with you, support you, and guide you in your journey.

“Not all who wander are lost” is a quote I have loved while walking through my own life’s uncertainty. When you find yourself faced with an unclear path, talking with a therapist offers comfort, clarity, connection, and guidance. Counseling involves exploring yourself in a safe space that includes your perceptions and behaviors, and anything else relevant to the healing process. We can all thrive when provided the appropriate environment, so my primary goal is providing the type of safe space that works best for you.
