Navigating through life's challenges can sometimes feel like drowning in a sea of emotions, leading to avoidant behaviors and a sense of being stuck in a time warp. In those moments, seeking help is a courageous step towards self-discovery and a satisfying life. As Bob Marley wisely said, "Beginnings are usually scary, and endings are usually sad, but it’s everything in between that makes it all worth living."

I specialize in holding space for diverse lived experiences, considering factors like social implications, systemic elements, gender identity, culture, and intergenerational trauma.

I help individuals navigate personal and collective paths amid life's trials through counseling, psychotherapy, and behavior analysis. My expertise extends to treating anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, substance abuse, conduct disorders, and addressing psychological aspects of physical challenges.

What to Expect From Our Sessions

I provide a judgment free and safe space for exploration and discovery. Through active and collaborative work, I will help you identify the root cause of your problems. I am laid back, authentic and passionate about helping my clients thrive.

With a special education teacher background, I bring a unique perspective to my work, specializing in treating both adults and children with neurotypicality/neurodivergence and school/work performance challenges.

I use effective tools to help you discover the root cause of your symptoms. Together, we'll develop strategies to overcome negative thinking patterns and behaviors that may hinder you from living life to the fullest.

Why I became a Therapist

My transition to therapy was a natural evolution driven by a desire to contribute more profoundly to the well-being of others. Each day, I encountered individuals navigating complex emotional landscapes, and I became increasingly motivated to provide a more direct and impactful form of support.

Becoming a therapist allowed me to merge my experiences as an educator with a more comprehensive understanding of mental health and well-being. I discovered that through therapeutic interventions, individuals could overcome obstacles and embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
