My Approach to Helping

You want to heal? I'm here. I can't promise you it's all going to be great, but it's so worth the journey!

I've always had a passion to help and care for others. After my first career did not provide that at all, I pursued counseling and fell in awe of what I could do for my community. I want to be added to the faces and the numbers that others can see themselves in. Representation matters to reduce the stigma of mental health and seek help. I do not limit myself to BIPOC clients, but I want to show we are out there helping. I want ALL my clients, regardless of race, sex, gender identity, sexual identity and age, to know I am here for them. I help my clients grow and shape themselves into their true authentic and nurtured selves.

More Info About My Practice

I believe in the importance of community. As humans it is in our nature to connect with others. As a bisexual, woman of color I am actively involved in LGBTQIA+ issues, racial injustice and gender equality issues. I became a therapist because I believe there is no place for hate in this world. Since this is not yet a reality we live in, I strive to help people navigate life's difficulties and the added societal issues. Unfortunately, even with new generations we still suffer from the burdens and bigotry of the past. It is our responsibility to improve for the next generation. A heavy weight to bear, especially for a problem we did not start. That's why I do what I do, reaching for our better selves. I believe I'm here to help achieve this for my clients and for myself.
