I am focused on providing a collaborative and person-centered approach for those seeking therapeutic services. There is no "one-size-fits-all" philosophy in counseling and each person deserves an individualized process that can help with developing tools in order to better cope with life stressors or transitions. My goal is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment throughout each client's journey towards finding clarity and stability in their lives. Everyone deserves to find the confidence in themselves to further their personal or professional goals in life.

**Appointments This Week** My work focuses on helping individuals identify and develop a new level of awareness within themselves. This begins with shifting one’s mindset, your thoughts. Often, I would hear client’s express being uncomfortable in silence as all they are left with are their thoughts. Learning to be at peace with your thoughts is essential for healing. “Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. If you correct your mind, the rest of your live will fall into place” Lao Tzu.
