About

It's all about connections. It's important that you feel a connection to your counselor. I view clients as the experts. You know yourself better than anyone, and have the ability to solve your own problems. Rather than a textbook response, you may want some guidance, reassurance, or just to be heard. Often the biggest obstacle keeping us from accomplishing goals is ourselves. I can help you get out of your own way, and find the answers and clarity you seek. Serving as a catalyst, I'll help connect you with your inner strength, wisdom, and courage.
Once your power has been unleashed, it should be nurtured in a safe, healing, non-judgmental, culturally and ethically sensitive environment that encourages personal growth and builds upon strengths. This allows it to flourish. Without proper nurturing, your power can easily be drained by life's challenges, stressors, and negativity.
I have over 14 years experience in Behavioral and Mental Health. I offer an integrative, whole-person approach that heals the mind, body and spirit. Connect with me and discover your inner strength through mindfulness, meditation, stress-management, emotional regulation and cognitive restructuring, to stay charged and live life to the fullest.
