About My Clients

Over five years of experience with children and adolescents with trauma. Other specialties include overachievers, overthinkers, persistent depression, reactive attachment disorder, social anxiety as well as personal development. I am multicultural competent and will always keep your values in mind during session

My Background and Approach

We are all trying to achieve something in life. We all want better for ourselves. My approach focuses on your strengths to ascend your personal growth. Life can be hectic at times and throw curveballs at us. We are required to adapt to the various obstacles that we come across. I pride myself on being personable and do not consider myself to be your average therapist. I will laugh with you, be silent with you and whatever you need to feel comfortable. I promise to move at your pace and meet you where you are at in your life. A sense of connection, safety, honesty & open-mindedness are the values that I strive for.
