My Approach to Helping

I am a believer that with the right supports, we can find the power to heal ourselves. I focus on the mindbodyspirit connection, incorporating somatic work and evidence-based counseling techniques to obtain holistic mental well-being. I am experienced in working with families and individuals who have experienced trauma, depression, and anxiety. I take a culturally-sensitive, strength-based, and collaborative approach to counseling. I incorporate expressive arts, movement, and breathing exercises in my clinical work.
