My life experience as a single mother & student who achieved her PhD-informs my practice.
My passion is working with clients between 13-18 as well as young and early adults. I love to work to empower clients, build insight, heal relationships and provide practical tools for clients to use as they develop into young adulthood. My other client focus is on victims of sexual exploitation including victims of Human Trafficking and sexual abuse. I incorporate the dynamics of race and ethnicity into my practice and like to work with people from these marginalized populations addressing how these factors impact treatment and resilience. My ideal client is motivated and committed to treatment.

If you are facing difficulties in your life, together we can work on finding a solution to help you have a healthy and “whole” life experience. The key is knowing you do not have to face life challenges and barriers alone.

You already have the answers you need. You do. All you really need is someone to listen to you as you figure out what you already know, or someone to encourage you to make the changes you know you need to make. Sometimes you are waiting for permission to take a step, set a boundary, leave an unhealthy relationship, etc. Other times, you may know you need to change, but just don’t know how. Counseling is a place to let down your walls, process pain, and gain insight from a trusted, neutral person without fear of judgment.

Maybe you’ve arrived at a point in your life where you are wondering, “How did I get here?” You might be feeling stressed, anxious or weighed down by experiences that have happened to you. Perhaps you feel stuck and you have been trying to change things but nothing seems to be working? Irvin Yalom said, “If we climb high enough, we will reach a height from which tragedy ceases to look tragic.” I collaborate with individuals, couples and families towards achieving a sense of resiliency, compassion, and discovery.
