I understand therapy can be scary but it doesn’t have to be. I offer both individual and couples therapy. In both my personal and professional life, I’ve recognized that asking for help is courageous and often allows me to see that I’m not alone. Being vulnerable is being brave because I show up in my authenticity which can often feel scary. When we let someone in, it’s powerful and we allow ourselves the opportunity to grow and to heal.
I utilize:
Cognitive Behavioral
Dialectical Behavioral
Acceptance and Commitment
Solution-Focused Therapy
Gottman Therapy
Emotionally Focused Therapy
My approach is strength-based and client centered putting you in the driver’s seat.
I do not believe in coming with an agenda, and I make sure we discuss what would be most important for you in the session. I strive to create both a brave and safe space that is non-judgmental so you can openly share your thoughts and feelings.
I can work with you on a wide range of topics such as:
Relationships/Couples Therapy
As a woman of color, my hope is to change the notion of mental health and therapy being a stigma. You are courageous for seeking help and for wanting growth. This is how change happens so take the first step on your journey towards recognizing your inner strength and practicing self love.  
I'm passionate to help clients heal, grow and thrive so you can live a more balanced life. Change takes time and can be scary but I'm here to support you one step at a time.
Together, we can help you get to a place where there is less self-doubt and judgement and more compassion, self love and strength so you can live an authentic and thriving life.
I have experience working with adolescents, individuals and couples for over ten years in both the public and the private sector. I have learned that the client/family are experts in their own life and helping them get unstuck makes a direct impact on having better outcomes.
 I offer both virtual and in-person sessions however, due to Covid, all sessions will be virtual until further notice.
I strongly believe that clients should have the right therapist that best fits their need. For this reason, I offer free 15 minute consultation. Please go to my website to schedule your free consultation today and take the first step on your journey to strength and self love. I look forward to working with you soon!
