My Approach to Helping

If you are ready to start healing yourself and your relationships in a safe and affirming space, you have come to the right place. I help clients center their strengths, build resilience, and recover from the trauma of physical, sexual, emotional, and verbal abuse in childhood or as an adult. I am passionately committed to helping others. I value ongoing learning, and believe stories can heal. Our work reconnects you with yourself, building fertile ground into which you can sow seeds of acceptance and compassion. I note and discuss your strengths and untapped potential. Together, we’ll use them to help you build a new life. We will work together in strength, and ignite hope.

I am a collaborative, interactive counselor, integrating complementary methodologies and techniques that can help clients from diverse communities. I provide individual therapy to manage trauma symptoms such as depression, anxiety, anxiety, flashbacks, and self-injury. These experiences often lead to debilitating challenges in pursuing one's dreams for a healthy personal and professional life. My goal is to build transparent, accepting, authentic relationships with my clients, inviting them to be more of who they are and cultivating the courage to incorporate this into their daily lives.

I treat my clients with respect, kindness, and dignity. We collaborate to build a relationship that values and helps you achieve your goals. It is a privilege to hear your story, and to support your recovery and healing.
