Therapy Style

After working in corporate America for 20 years, I decided to follow my passion for supporting people's emotional well-being. I noticed that mental health wasn't always a priority in many of our busy schedules. As a former executive with high cultural and diversity IQ, I'm able to help you develop effective behavioral tools to reduce your suffering and help you thrive living the life you consider worth living. I like to empower others to succeed in their careers while also maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
