My Approach to Helping
I am a mental health professional and advocate focused on empowering diverse individuals to accomplish mental health and wellness goals. I am not here to judge you, but rather listen to your story and support you along the way. Counseling is a dynamic therapeutic relationship in which we both learn, grow and change. I work best with feedback and collaboration, as you are the expert of your life and I am a guide. Based on your goals, we collaborate to create homework as a way to keep you engaged and accountable between sessions. This efficiency supports the changes you are trying to achieve in your mental wellness journey.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Sometimes we get stuck or we may feel like we can't get out of our own way. Research shows the healthiest individuals pursue counseling. You are not alone. Talking to a mental health professional is a great first step in understanding more about yourself, your needs and the changes that you want to implement in your life.
My Role as a Therapist
The foundation of my role as a therapist is to create a space of safety, support and mutual respect. It is an honor to listen to an individual's story and I find inspiration in helping others find their voice.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
?Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.?
