At times, the stress in our life can seem to snowball, and it becomes difficult to be “okay” in the midst of all the chaos. If this is the case for you, you might be feeling alone, struggling with knowing where to start, and feeling completely overwhelmed by taking even the smallest steps forward. I believe that no one should be alone in working through challenging life transitions. I'm here to offer you a safe space where you can explore your emotions, identify challenges, and work towards positive change.

As a counselor, I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples find their way through life's ups and downs. With a compassionate and non-judgmental approach, I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you can feel supported and empowered to explore your unique struggles.

My counseling style is direct and challenging, yet always focused on building a strong therapeutic relationship with you. I believe that you are the expert on your own life, and my role is to help you uncover the answers and solutions that already exist within you. Together, we'll work towards your goals, whether that's managing anxiety and depression, improving relationships, coping with grief, or navigating life transitions.

I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and couples from diverse backgrounds, and I view each client through a multicultural lens. This means that I recognize and respect the impact of your identity and background on your experiences and relationships, and I'm committed to addressing these factors in our work together.

In our sessions, I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches, includingCognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),and solution-focused therapies, to tailor our work to your specific needs and goals. Whether you're seeking support for anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or other challenges, I'm here to help you develop new skills, gain insight, and move towards a more fulfilling life.
