In life, we tend to push back areas in our lives that need our attention. We say things like "tomorrow", "next week", "later", and it leaves us entrapped by fear and stagnant in our progress towards personal success. Living through a pandemic has emotionally impacted the way we think, feel, and view the world around us. Step out of the revolving door and let today mark the first step towards your healing journey. Can it be scary? YES. Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! I provide a warm, compassionate, nonjudgemental environment to help identify and build upon inherent strengths for those who are crippled by thoughts of faults and failures.

Rize-Up Together was started by three women of The Bronx 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. Rize-Up Together 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.

As a mental health clinican with over forty years of life experience, I believe that perception affects an individual's performance. I find that if a person believes they can do something well, they will do it well and vice versa. I am especially interested in this observable fact and how an individual's perception and cognitive process affects their behavior. Interestingly enough most people normalize behaviors, behaving according to how their community, family, friends or worst yet life long patterns of maladaptive behaviors; equipping my clients with a diverse set of tools to handle life stressors is essential for optimum living.
