For over a decade, I have been treating adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, adjustment issues and relationship difficulties. I take an individualized approach, guiding each client to discover and utilize her strengths and internal resources in the healing process. I assist my clients in identifying and overcoming their own barriers to being happier and calmer. I also use a skills-based approach to provide my clients with new resources to help them more effectively navigate daily life and relationships.
When was the last time you felt comfortable and confident in yourself? Each of us are tested daily with situations that make us doubt ourselves and question if we can really enjoy our lives. We face judgments and prejudices that create negative feelings about ourselves, and find ways to get through life, not to live it. The focus of myself and Seek Your Peace Therapy is your health and quality of life.
Are you experiencing unbearable levels of anxiety? Do you go to sleep at night wondering how you got through another day? Is trauma from your past seeping into your everyday life? Do you want to be present in relationships but feel too preoccupied with your own "stuff" to get out of your head? Do you feel stuck in vicious cycles of anxiety and pain? Are you frozen in the fight, flight or freeze response, suffering from a nervous system that just can't relax? I specialize in anxiety and trauma work, and my focus is on a comprehensive approach for permanent relief. I look forward to getting to know you and creating a customized plan.
All relationships rupture...but not all relationships repair. A couple's ability to safely and effectively repair their ruptures, and heal their pain, is an essential ingredient to any healthy long-term connection. In my office, I meet a great variety of people and relationship types; some are merely dating, while others are already engaged, or have begun the marital journey... and yet others are anywhere from 10-50 years into their marriage. What unites them all is the great human need and desire to feel understood, seen, safe, loved, and held.
Hello, I am a bilingual and bicultural therapist whose goal is to support my patients/clients to feel heard and validated. I want my patients to progress and understand that their diagnosis does not define nor control them. I am willing to walk this journey with my patients and push them when they need the push, and support them when they feel “alone”. I graduated in May of 2020, with my Master of Science in Marriage, Family, and Couples, I have been working with patients on a therapeutic level for about 2 years. However, I have worked in case management roles and child protection collectively for over 20 years.

Our lives today are hectic and stressful, more so than ever before. Much of the time we are on automatic pilot, running from one activity to the next. What often suffers most are ourselves and our relationships. Tension, worry, anxiety and depression are often a consequence. We have less and less time and energy to invest in our personal relationships, including our significant others and our children. Technology pulls people even further apart. We end up feeling disconnected, even unloved. We often feel powerless to make changes, feeling stuck and often hopeless. Many of us live our lives like this.
Footprints was started by a therapist who realized that often times the services provided to low socio-economic communities is lacking quality care. We noticed these communities where confronted with long wait times, disrespectful admins, and subpar treatment. The one and only purpose was to exploit the community for profit without providing the level of care deserved. Footprints began from the inspiration to provide quality mental health care to the poorest of communities and treating the clients of this community the same way a rich patient would be treated in a clinic treating affluent clients.
