Therapy is not one size fits all. Therapy should be catered to your individual needs, concerns, and goals. I will walk beside you on your journey, assisting you over the bumps and cracks along the road. We can start wherever you are in your healing and self discovery, as there is no pressure to talk about things that you do not want to. I often hear that others are concerned about starting over, retelling their stories. Well, that is not the case here. You are in control of your story and I am here to listen, clarify and help you write the next chapters you deserve. This is not easy life work and you do not have to do it alone.
I offer a person centered approach, empowering you to be vulnerable and strong through your pain, challenges and fears. I have spent my life living, caring and working with people struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety and other life struggles. Helping others recognize and develop their strengths and boundaries is pivotal to breaking cycles.

I work with individuals who are early in their healing and others who have been surviving most of their lives. Many people I work with are struggling with self hate, low self esteem, family dysfunction and being the Scapegoat. During our initial sessions, we will explore your concerns, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you thrive and have a better life.
