I approach mental health in a systemic, collaborative, strengths-based therapeutic way to help clients acknowledge the various unique contexts which impact their lives. This allows them to connect with their strengths and learn new ways to live in wholeness. My empathy and warmth help create a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients can process and heal. I utilize various therapeutic approaches. I believe that clients have the answers, and together, we will find a deeper awareness of who they are, who they want to become, and how to propel them onto a path of healing, growth, and actualization.

What is therapy?

My perspective of therapy is summed up in a traditional word called, "talk therapy". Talking about your mental and emotional health gives me insight into patterns and hardships that are experienced by people from all walks of life. I want to help you connect the pieces so that you're living your best life. 


What led you to become a mental healthcare practitioner? 

I became a mental health practitioner because many people have received advice but not necessarily effective counsel. I desire to make a difference through effective counseling to evoke change and liberty.
