About

This may not be an easy time in your life and I respect your courage to reach out for help. Hiding fear of failure or family pressure to be perfect and make it look effortless is a daily struggle. I know you can be overwhelmed. Frustrated and angry. I have lived it and have decades of experience. After facing the pressure from parents, peers, or yourself, you need a place to sort out who you are and how you fit into these pieces. You may be looking for a safe place to work through your challenges, such as when you are experiencing anxiety or depression, or even a unique cultural experience that you feel nobody understands.
After 15 years of experience in therapy helping families, as well as school-based counseling, I understand the struggles both adults & teens face. My doctoral specialization in mind, brain, and learning allow me to provide you with the tools necessary to cope with your learning and wellness obstacles. I would love to support. Please don't wait to get help.
I use mindfulness-based methods focusing on mental barriers that keep us from achieving our goals. I help achieve ease for families and individuals. My approach is solution-focused with eclectic therapeutic techniques. I understand the hardest part is to get started and call me. Please don't hesitate to contact me for a peaceful path to a thriving life.
