Taking the step to seek counsel is often a bold decision. My goal as a therapist is to use the gift of compassion and empathy to come alongside you in the journey towards healing and change. I seek to provide quality and effective care to individuals, couples, and families through an interactive and direct approach while also maintaining cultural sensitivity and competence. I deeply enjoy the collaborative process of working with the unique challenges faced by young adults, couples, and women in postpartum. By providing a non-judgmental, safe space, I have been privileged to watch countless individuals and families grow and thrive through counseling. It is my desire to utilize the therapeutic process to promote change and instill hope. I would be honored to join you and your family in making this step towards peace.
