There are times in life when we can experience tremendous challenges and we do not have to face them alone.  Going through life’s experiences and becoming who we truly are can feel like a sacred journey if caring and guiding support is present.  I guide individuals to look at and work through their difficulties, recognize their strengths and honor their individual needs.  I encourage my clients to explore topics that hinder their growth, because this helps them to develop and deepen into their true understanding of Self.  I hold the therapeutic relationship with utmost respect and offer a non-judgmental perspective.  I empower my clients by creating an individualized and unique therapeutic experience.  Integrating mind, body, and spiritual elements, I support my clients to feel held and to transform painful moments into productive, deepening and growthful experiences.

I work with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, needing support in their interpersonal relationships, dealing with substance use, post incarceration, daily skills to enhance quality of life, cultivating self love, and finding life direction.
