About My Clients

Have you been struggling to adjust to life during a pandemic? Are you feeling overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious during quarantine? Has it been difficult navigate healthy and meaningful relationships with loved ones? I have experience assisting clients in navigating life transitions, creating and maintaining healthy relationships, coping with anxiety and depression, as well as improving self-esteem and helping individuals find fulfillment.

My Background and Approach

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I believe in a person-centered and collaborative approach as you are the expert in your own life. Our work together will focus on addressing any difficulties you may be facing, while building a secure, trusting relationship. I work to understand and celebrate all intersecting identities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every person deserves to live a whole and fulfilling life and sometimes there are learned behaviors, unhealthy coping skills, relationships, or societal constraints that can get in the way. I believe in allowing you to bring your true self into therapy without judgment. My role is to support you and walk along side you, while you determine the best solutions for yourself. I support BLM, the LGBTQ+ community, Women's rights, and the ability for all to be seen and heard as their authentic selves.
