My Approach to Helping
The most common goal for couples who come to therapy is to improve communication. This goal is achievable through attending couples therapy. I offer gentle guidance - backed by decades of scientific research on improving relationship health by Drs. John and Julie Gottman - to support you in achieving your goals.
Couples may experience these changes after attending couples therapy:
â€¢ Feeling better equipped to handle conflict
â€¢ Greater acceptance of self and the partner
â€¢ Improved communication skills
â€¢ Increase intimacy and trust
â€¢ Increased affection and fondness toward each other
â€¢ Increased awareness of cultural differences
I am familiar with the common issues and challenges that interracial couples often experience. Drawing on my training and experience, I am able to offer them deeper understanding from a cultural perspective and provide them with insightful guidance.

My Role as a Therapist
You are aware that you are born whole - full of spirit, integrity, with a sense of love and belonging. Somewhere along the years of living, these parts of you become less visible while anxiety, depression, and life's stress get in the way of living your full potential. But these parts of you are never truly gone. You can access and reclaim them. I offer gentle guidance in supporting you to return to your wholeness. You will experience the lightness of life with less anxiety, depression and stress.
I thank you for allowing me to be your guide on your journey to return to love and happiness!
