About My Clients

Therapy should be a place where you feel safe to divulge your darkest secrets while knowing that the person that you confide in, will not only support your journey of self-improvement and healing but help guide you like a beacon in the sea or a flashlight when it’s dark... Because of this, I strive to host a welcoming and safe space for ALL (LGBTQIA, Military/Family, Students, Adults, POC, and etc) who wish to either start or continue their mental health journey of healing.

My Background and Approach

I have over 15 years providing therapeutic services to a variety of populations. I started my career as a generalist practitioner and then transitioned into working with the severely and chronically mentally ill. Those experiences allowed me to work in a variety of community and government settings, which include hospitals, clinics, military facilities, and educational institutions. In my years of experience, I have found that a solution-focused approach which is a model that is goal-driven works best for my clientele. Because of this, I work closely to understand the goals of my clients and we mutually figure out the best way to move forward to obtain their desired outcome. This goal-directed approach is empowering and respectful to the client and their lifestyle and is tailored to fit their needs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that finding the RIGHT therapist is one of the most crucial parts of the therapeutic process... I don’t know if I will be the perfect fit for you, but I do know that I am willing to take the time to find out. And if I am a good fit for you please know that I am committed to helping you in your journey of healing.
