“In providing therapeutic services my approach is both humanistic and empowerment-based. I believe all of us have the capacity to create positive changes in our lives if we are willing to look within to find our own strengths and put them into practice. Offering a safe space for self-exploration and healing has allowed me to witness great personal transformations and resilience for both individuals and families. By reconnecting mind, body, and spirit we can increase our self-awareness and make lasting changes.
I have worked with adults, young adults, and families in individual and group counseling. I have specialized in empowering survivors of trauma and violence, as well as assisting with anxiety, adjustment to life transitions, grief/loss, self-esteem, relationship issues, career and financial empowerment, stress, and parenting.”
