Announcement icon During this unprecedented pandemic, I am exclusively offering temporary teletherapy sessions in lieu of face-to-face appointments.
I provide mindful, compassionate, and strengths-based counseling support intended to arouse empowerment in those who seek to find hope through healing. I believe the marriage between a strong therapeutic relationship and personal motivation is the most powerful agent for change and self-improvement. I strive to meet my clients wherever they may be in their lives, providing clinical tools to assist them in achieving their identified goals. I focus on creating and maintaining a safe space physically, emotionally, and spiritually where clients feel comfortable facing their challenges and exploring their most heartfelt desires.
My preferred areas of practice and treatment specialization include: self-worth; parenting; LGBTQ; interpersonal relationships; depression; anxiety; mood management; trauma/abuse; family dynamics; adjustment/transition; and grief/loss. I have experience working with clients of all ages, abilities, and diagnoses as well as individuals, couples, and families.
My focus is on the development of a strong therapeutic alliance, as I believe that by fostering a trusting relationship between client and therapist, personal growth is achieved and emotional awareness is obtained. I'm invested in empowering clients by way of providing validation, emotional support, empathy, and education.
