Hello and congratulations on making the decision to take next steps! We all need help sometimes and it’s more than okay to ask for it. Life is really hard and you don’t need to make this journey alone. I am here to listen and walk with you as you go through the process of change. As we come across challenges in our lives, we often find ourselves getting caught up in repetitive loops due to past pains that constantly come back to haunt us. Our wounds can lead us to engage with ourselves and others in harmful ways, which have become a symptom of how we have learned to adapt and cope.
I work with clients to get in touch with their humanity and awaken to get to know who they truly are. I challenge the old sense of self to bridge to greater authenticity and personal empowerment. Therapeutic work is done through insight-oriented healing within a co-created space. My approach is empathic and compassionate, but assertive and realistic.
I have a culturally rich personal and professional background that has spanned across an array of people and life experiences. I advocate on behalf of diversity within the context of healthy and safe living, and self-love encompassing many walks of life.
