About Me

My journey to becoming the therapist I am today has been profoundly shaped by my personal experiences. As a child, my therapist was a true inspiration. She equipped me with the tools to navigate life's challenges, and this experience motivated me to pursue a career dedicated to providing similar support to others. Every day, I'm excited to help people grow, become healthier, and feel more in control of their lives. The greatest reward in my profession is the ability to inspire others to realize their full potential. I am committed to helping you make meaningful strides towards achieving your goals. _____________________________________ My practice is based on the philosophy of putting you first. At the core of my practice lies the principle of prioritizing your unique needs and experiences. I firmly believe that meaningful change becomes attainable when you grant yourself the opportunity to engage in self-exploration. By opening up and sharing our stories with someone who listens empathetically and offers understanding, we can alleviate the burden of shame. My commitment is to cultivate a secure and welcoming environment that enables you to be your authentic self. Recognizing that a "one size fits all" approach falls short in counseling, I strive to tailor our sessions to address your individual needs and concerns, ensuring a personalized therapeutic experience.
