About Me

As a licensed psychotherapist I help clients enhance their emotional health. I believe my role is to help clients tap into their authentic selves to begin the process of embracing their truth about their past and present experiences. I am a guide and a support when folks feel stuck, hopeless, and helpless. My desire is to position my clients as the expert of their own lives. I validate client’s fears, and I affirm that they have the strength and the courage to conquer them. I find joy in helping clients explore and discover new insights, achieve goals, set healthy boundaries with themselves and others, and achieve holistic health and balance in there every day living. I support clients with restructuring and unlearning unhealthy habits; negative core beliefs systems, and repeated behavioral patterns that no longer serve them. I have helped clients reduce their stress, end self-defeating thoughts, and stop self-harming behaviors. Through consistent therapy sessions client are able to restore balance in their lives and regain self-confidence.
