As a therapist, I strive to create a safe and supportive environment for adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, life transitional issues, interpersonal concerns, cultural and identity concerns. My goal is to provide you with skills, techniques, and an open environment for you to process your past and present, and create an improved platform for your future.

I believe that each relationship is a unique interaction, and tailor my approach to each client’s needs, integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and a Humanistic approach. This eclectic approach provides you with a personalized treatment plan meant to fit you and your needs, enabling you to feel understood, empowered, and prepared to handle the unknown.
