My approach in creating a therapeutic relationship is strength-based, culturally responsive and welcoming.
“Our worst break could spark our biggest breakthrough and our darkest moment can lead us to light". Everyone at different points in life experiences difficult circumstances and issues that cause stress, anxiety, sadness, grief, anger, confusion, and other responses that impact the quality of our lives and relationships. I believe people carry the answers they seek inside them. Therapy provides a safe place to feel heard, to better listen to yourself, to find your truth and your voice. It can also be a place to practice expressing yourself in new ways; using the therapy relationship to break destructive or unhelpful communication.

Therapy is an exploratory and learning process. If you feel stuck, frustrated, and wonder "Why can't I fix this?," you are not alone. "Fixing" implies brokenness. Perhaps, it is not about "fixing," but making changes to be more effective in life. My goal as a therapist is to bring compassion to you and foster a sense of empowerment.
