Life didn't come with a manual and sometimes we find ourselves off course or stuck, unable to move forward. A sensitive and caring approach to counseling may help you discover the thoughts and beliefs that hold you back, as we utilize a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy. I say we, because cognitive behavioral therapy is a collaborative process between equals, that challenges and changes the thoughts that work to maintain depression and anxiety. My goal is to help guide you through the process of therapy, allowing you to truly heal, as you gain access to and build upon your inner resources.

As a therapist who identifies as both BIPOC and LGBTQ+, I bring a deep understanding of the unique challenges and complexities that individuals from marginalized communities face. My personal journey of self-discovery and resilience has deeply informed my approach to therapy. I am passionate about providing culturally affirming and inclusive care to individuals who share similar identities. I understand firsthand the importance of having a therapist who not only validates your experiences but also shares in them. My lived experiences has provided me insight into the intersections of identity, discrimination and mental health.

Having been in the behavioral health field for over a decade, I have learned that relationships and safety are paramount to healing. I have learned that people are not broken, but surviving. Sometimes, it is how we've learned to survive that no longer serves us. Through looking at attachment patterns over a lifetime, I use EMDR to help target behaviors that no longer serve. I also use elements of ACT and mindfulness to create space that feels safe and creates hope. I also will write emotional support animal letters for those who qualify.

Life is ever changing and there are times when we need someone who is impartial and nonjudgmental to help us through. As a licensed counselor I provide that support as well as a safe environment for individuals to express themselves freely and openly without fear of being shamed, embarrassed or criticized for their thoughts and/or feelings. I see many clients with depression and anxiety and have found Cognitive therapy has many benefits. The skill of mindfulness is one that I practice daily and, after teaching the client, encourage them to use it on a daily basis. I am now a registered hypnotherapist so I can now offer hypnosis.
