We would be a good fit to work together if...

  • You’re feeling disconnected from everyone, even those closest to you. 

  • You put others’ needs before yours and feel guilty otherwise. 

  • You’d like to socialize...but you talk yourself out of it for fear of being rejected

  • You want everyone to like you but you wish you didn’t care. 

  • You desperately want to let go of things from the past that are weighing you down but you feel stuck.
     

I am passionate about/would love to help you:

  • Speak up and ask for what you want

  • Be more open with your loved ones. 

  • Feel more confident & self-assured 

  • Say “no” without apology. 

  • Feel  genuinely calm. 

  • Feel comfortable meeting new people and let others get to know the real you. 

 

Why did I decide to be a therapist?

While all the other kids in my third grade class were dreaming of being astronauts, I was creating my first, fictional therapy practice. Since then, I’ve been building my path as a therapist.  No matter my role, one question has remained in my mind: how can we use our passions and strengths to move ourselves towards healing? This is what I work with my clients to discover.  

My Professional Background

In my sessions, I incorporate strengths based and trauma informed practices to help my clients build their resiliency and develop their internal strengths. With my background and training in creative arts therapy, I can work with clients in a variety of ways to get to the heart of their internal conflicts and move beyond them.

As a disability justice based therapist, I have extensive experience working with clients with disabilities, chronic illnesses, and PTSD. Through therapy, we can explore how to honor and celebrate individual identities while developing coping tools to navigate social, societal, and environmental barriers that may appear.

Why did I decide to be a therapist?

I have always enjoyed helping people, and now more than ever before, therapists are much more needed to help people navigate the uncertainties of life. I decided to become a therapist because of my desire to help people experience the life they desire. 

 

My Professional Background

I am in my final year of my master’s of art in counseling program. I will be working collaboratively with you to process thoughts, feelings and emotions that continue to serve as an emotional barrier in interfering with how you experience your life. I use a person-centered approach to make my clients utilize the therapy space however they see fit as hold space for them to navigate life’s challenges.

Why did I decide to be a therapist?

As a child, I remember daydreaming about becoming a counselor  one day. I found myself resolving conflicts with my peers and people would always call me for advice to help them deal with issues happening in their lives. I found that I enjoy helping people, so counseling has always been a big part of who I am. 

My Professional Background

In my sessions, I help my clients navigate their  thoughts and emotions to come to a place of greater understanding of self using reality and solution oriented therapy. Together, we can utilize the art of mindfulness in your practices that will help you understand your feelings and emotions better so you are feeling more in control of your life.

 

As an addiction therapist, I work with youth and families struggling to manage recovery, as well as other forms of addiction. We can work together to help you manage the things in your life that are taking you away from experiencing your true potential and introduce you to other ways of coping and managing your thoughts so you feel more in control of your life and other people’s lives just by changing and managing yours. Solution Oriented therapy but have an eclectic style of counseling that is catered to every individual client.
