Therapy Style

My counseling style is helping individuals become their best selves. I provide a non-judgmental, transparent environment where you can find it easy to communicate your feelings, fears, and concerns. I assist in helping find the solutions to your problems and the happiness we all strive for. I am driven by the successful outcomes of my client's experience and their efforts towards achieving their goals.

My theoretical approach incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and a Strengths-Based perspective. I have experience working with all ages, from early childhood to older adults. I offer support in various issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, trauma, sexuality, and life's challenges. I specialize in working with people of color and marginalized communities. I look forward to assisting in the journey to healing and happiness.

Pronouns

she/her

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy cooking, roller skating, traveling (especially road trips), spa days, aromatherapy, and interior decorating.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your mental and emotional well-being?

Daily meditation supports my mental health and emotional well-being. I also enjoy stargazing and listening to chirping birds when they are visiting certain times of the year.

Favorite non-profit?

My favorite organization is Mental Health America because it provides so many resources from housing, employment, and psychotherapy to those struggling with mental health. They also provide a sense of community and belonging for all people no matter the severity of the mental health disorder.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by taking quarterly vacations either with family, friends or alone. And of course, meditation.
