About

Life can be tough! But I think we sometimes forget our resilience when life, school, work, and family, throws us twists and turns. Sometimes, we need a little help in balancing all the demands that are placed upon us and that we place upon ourselves. Welcome to your journey to self re/discovery! You have taken a major step towards your goals even by reading this profile. As your Counselor, I see this as a collaborative process. Using a very kind, personable, authentic and non-judgmental approach, we will walk together as you discover your many hidden strengths along the way to hope and healing.
I work with a wide range of populations and issues including but not limited to depression, infertility, infant/pregnancy loss, adjustment, anxiety, stress, relationships, grief/loss, trauma, LGBTQA+ issues, school issues and self-esteem. I have a particular and expertise interest in working with women of color, people of color, and teenagers/adolescents.
I am looking forward to taking this journey with you with an empathetic ear and an open mind. You are worth listening to! You deserve your healing and happiness, and I am confident that you can reach your personal goals. I hope we can work together soon.

Rising Hope Counseling and Wellness's Groups

Sisters of Aya

A 5-week support group and craft night for women of color who have experienced pregnancy/infant loss and fertility challenges. We as women of color are taught to just keep moving and to not acknowledge the true trauma that losing a child and fertility challenges causes. It is a unique group that allows women of color to collectively grieve, love and support each other, while engaging in various craft activities to create something beautiful. It is my hope that they will find some type of joy in their dark time. I strongly believe in the power of sisterhood and crafting!!
