While open to serving all individuals, Just Be Rooted is operated to provide counseling and creativity services with a focus on youth (ages 5-18) and adults who identify as being a part of a marginalized group.
My Background and Approach

I use an array of therapeutic approaches in order to meet the diverse needs of my clients. I believe in using strengths based perspective to facilitate growth and change while respecting my client’s path.
