In a city where clients are overwhelmed with noise, societal pressure, and various obligations, I provide a space for clients to feel heard, validated, and receive empathy which has allowed clients to experience positive and lasting changes. I help clients to quiet the noise in their minds, get in touch with themselves, and find balance and strength within. My clients have been able to find peace as they learn grounding techniques to manage anxiety, stress, and depression, increase self-esteem, refine communication, set boundaries and navigate difficult relationship and family issues, recover from work burnout, and heal from painful memories by utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. I find joy in helping clients gain a positive perspective of themselves and heal from their past, thrive in the present and experience hope for the future.

I became a mental health therapist because I went to therapy and it was healing for me. I am passionate about seeing others have access to healing and hope through therapy. I want to provide a compassionate and safe space for clients to not feel alone as they recover and heal.
I like to play and dance to music, anything sports related to boards (surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding), exercising, martial arts, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family.
Pray, read scripture, breath work, meditation, and exercise. I also reach out to friends and on certain days of the week. I also spend time with my spouse.
