My Approach to Helping

My work is focused on initiating healing from the moment you walk through my door. And, I recognize it takes a lot of courage to be in the room with me as your therapist while beginning this journey of deeper understanding and change. Together we will look inward at the fragmented pieces of your life, which can be often intimidating, but you won’t be made to feel alone in this process. I will help you put the pieces of your life together so you can develop a stronger sense of self. My wish for you is to no longer survive, but to thrive. We will develop a connection that involves empathy, compassion, care, trust, and collaboration while developing a safe space for disclosure. In the absence of judgement and shame, feel free to explore your inner self. Allow me to assist you in navigating through your life in order to cultivate change. I welcome people from all walks of life into my practice. I have extensive clinical experience working with multicultural and LGBTQI communities. If you’re open to a quality therapeutic experience and are seeking change, contact me today to schedule a free phone consultation.
