About

I work with a variety of clients and am committed to each one equally. My focus is on the overall mental wellness of individuals according to each’s own unique needs; I am well-versed in theoretical orientations and multiculturalism. I engage with clients based on their individual needs, as each case is just as unique as the client(s). I work with the client(s) from their perspective and help them work towards their chosen goals. I navigate the client to achieve smaller, accomplishable goals that then create a building block for larger, more obtainable long-term goals while giving the client autonomy to enhance self-growth.
I offer clients a genuine, empathetic, judgment-free safe place. The client has complete autonomy and therapeutic practices and techniques rendered will be determined by the individual clients’ or families' needs. We will work together as a team, and I will be your guide along the way through this journey to achieve your ultimate goals.
All of my clients are given my personal cell phone number, and they each know they can call or text me anytime. Please reach out if you need someone to talk to. I also offer video chats if you feel more comfortable in your own space.
