About

I provide mindful, compassionate, and strengths-based counseling support intended to arouse empowerment in those who seek to find hope through healing. I believe a strong therapeutic alliance and personal motivation are the most powerful agents for change, growth, healing, 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 treatment goals. I focus on maintaining a safe space physically, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually where clients feel comfortable facing their challenges and exploring their heartfelt desires.
My preferred areas of practice and treatment specialization include: depression; anxiety; self-worth; parenting; LGBTQIA+; interpersonal relationships; mood management; trauma/abuse; family dynamics; adjustment/transition; and grief/loss. I have experience working with those of all races, abilities, and genders 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, personal growth is achieved and emotional awareness is obtained. I'm invested in empowering clients by way of providing validation, compassion, emotional support, empathy, and psychoeducation. We must feel to heal.
