About

Sometimes we encounter struggles that make the world a more difficult place to navigate. Feeling like you are rooted in self-doubt? Can't seem to quiet the negative thoughts in your mind? You are aware of your pain, but are unsure how to release it? I believe you deserve to live a life that is free from pain and suffering. I am here to prudently reflect the skills and strengths that you currently possess, but have difficulty accessing. I remain non-judgmental in the room and approach matters from a perspective of cultural sensitivity, allyship, and mindfulness.
With the use of a person-centered approach and cognitive-behavioral techniques, I support teens and adults overwhelmed by trauma and experiences that deny the individual from reaching self-acceptance.
Together, we can define the spaces between you, your experiences, and the goals you wish to attain. I will be your support as we start your journey of self -actualization, and self-discovery. I look forward to meeting you and joining you on your path towards fulfillment!
