About My Clients

Each of us is a complex being, formed by our life experiences and relationships. The inevitable frustrations, stressors, and disappointments of life can leave us overwhelmed and confused. My goal with clients is to raise their awareness and mindfulness so that they can bring balance and enjoyment back into their lives. Life's too short to be unhappy or unfulfilled — so what’s holding you back? Take back your life and pursue your dreams!

My Background and Approach

My experience includes years of providing therapy; working in various agency settings including those focused on individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, and academic support. Working with relationship difficulties, life transitions, career challenges, depression, and anxiety, has helped in developing my treatment approach. I have earned a Doctorate degree in Social Work and currently serve as a School Social Work Supervisor at an urban charter school. I am actively involved in ongoing training to stay current with cutting edge interventions. I help my clients break through the obstacles that hold them back in life. By asking the right questions and empowering them with the proper tools and techniques, I help clients take action in pursuit of their goals and ambitions. Through the creation of a safe and comfortable environment, you can find your purpose and improve mental well-being. You hold the power to your happiness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My practice is rooted in guiding clients through their strengths and weaknesses by offering a safe space for emotional processing. My experience and training as a school social worker also allow me to understand and support children and families of school-aged children. I aim to provide therapy to anyone interested, regardless of how the individual identifies. I believe that in order for therapy to be effective, the relationship you have with your therapist is of the utmost importance. Rapport building and trust will remain a focal point of our relationship!

I offer online counseling in the following states:
