About me

I work with clients feeling inadequate, anxious, overwhelmed, depressed, and hate their job, fighting with partners, emotional and relationship issues, work stress, and stuck in past trauma and mid-life crisis (don’t know what to do with their life). I help clients recognize their self-worth and follow safe and healthy interventions for a productive and healthy lifestyle. This will help the clients to form new associations when distressed and create a positive self-concept of themselves. My ultimate goal is to offer an approach influenced by a person-centered, conversational style, drawing upon CBT, mindfulness, and childhood trauma work to assist in overcoming barriers associated with depression, stress, anxiety, relationship distress, and trauma. While supporting individuals as they face codependency and/or addiction issues, sexual abuse, and other types of distress. I take a holistic, integrated, and strength-based person-centered counseling approach for healing and growth.

We all have a past. That’s part of who we are today. I value the counseling setting as a safe and non-judgemental space where individuals can first understand how their personal experiences have impacted their lives by discussing all thoughts and feelings freely to create new associations and replace emotional isolation with connections. I then collaborate with clients to establish authentic insights that will shape their stories moving forward. Nothing is more empowering than to know we have a non-judgemental support system to help us find our identity and voice during our challenging times. I am passionate about undoing loneliness, increasing one’s capacity to self-love and care, creating and maintaining healthy and loving relationships, and co-create the narrative to become the best version of oneself. When we understand and accept ourselves, growth and healing can occur! I will celebrate your self-identity and uniqueness to help you reach your goals. I care about your well-being and seek to provide supportive and collaborative therapy to individuals and families in leading more abundant lives. My mission is to support you, and meet you where you are in your journey to mental wellness and empowerment.
