About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Warm and inviting, direct, and an active listener who has a knack for leading you to reflections that move the therapeutic process forward.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I take a culturally sensitive, trauma-informed and strength-based approach to counseling, tailored to your unique needs and goals.

  • Together, we will:

    Collaborate on goals to reduce traumatic stress, connect your thoughts and feelings, and boost your self-confidence by building skills to better yourself, maintain healthy boundaries and become your best advocate.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Just like you, have it within them to prioritize their healing, create an authentic self-image and strengthen their relationships, but just need the support to get there.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I wanted to become the resource I did not have access to when I was learning to navigate tricky life transitions.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    There is no need to drive or figure out parking. Sessions are offered online and can be done from your cozy home or anywhere you have privacy.
