About

I believe that everyone deserves to be seen/heard, and has the potential for growth. I am passionate about leading people through various transitions in their lives. Using a guided and empathetic approach, I'm ready to empower you through our sessions together, helping you overcome whatever is holding back your full potential - whether it's a mental health issue or general life stressor. I intend on working with you to provide you the tools needed to navigate any issues/stressors that may be impacting your current daily functioning and quality of life.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Person-centered Therapy, and Strengths Based Therapy. Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life, children, adolescents, adults, as well as people in the LGBTQIA+ community.
I meet each one of my clients where they're at, and allow them to lead our sessions on topics that are comfortable for them. In return, I actively listen and offer guidance based on equal parts compassion and expertise. I believe this approach cultivates the strongest therapeutic foundation upon which a client's goals can be achieved.
