Accepting Clients

I created my own healing path after being born and raised in a conservative culture that did not understand or believe in mental health.

About My Clients

I work with people who struggle to find meaning in their lives. Who cannot define happiness or are not certain if they have ever felt happy. My practice is eclectic. I utilize EMDR, mindfulness, and cognitive behavior therapy. We will discuss all the intricate details that make you who you are, today. That means no judgement, no wishing to be different. I stand true to the roots of therapy where you are the expert of your life, and I, a source of guidance.

My Background and Approach

I have extensive experience in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and EMDR. Yoga, meditation, and movement therapy will also be incorporated for those clientele that seek to embody the mind and body connection. EMDR has not only helped me change the lives of my clients, but it has also helped me overcome my own trauma. I value mindfulness-based therapy to bring further awareness to self, the true, inner self.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The approach I take to therapy is centered around supporting the needs of clients and guiding them towards self-actualization. By creating a safe space, an individual can explore their deepest and most authentic self. This personalized environment brings together multiculturalism, inclusivity, and perspectives that embrace diversity with open arms. If nothing else, I guarantee honesty; I stand true to the roots of therapy with a focus on authenticity.
