My Approach

With all of the personal and professional demands on our time and emotional energy, maintaining balance, healthy habits and a positive attitude can become increasingly more difficult over time. Whether it is a relationship issue, struggle with self-acceptance, grief and loss, or a recent setback, we all face moments where we feel overwhelmed and uncertain about how to move forward. Being continually overwhelmed or stressed out can have a negative impact on our mental, emotional, and physical health, contributing to poor sleep, emotional fatigue, increased irritability, and poor decision making. If you want to restore balance in your life, experience more joy, personal fulfillment and inner peace or improve your relationship with self and others, you are in the right place.

My style is collaborative and solution focused. I approach each client with respect, cultural sensitivity and unconditional regard. I believe that each of us has been uniquely equipped with the strength needed to overcome life’s challenges. I bring to my work the understanding that many people of color continue to experience significant stigma and shame regarding mental health and emotional issues and have legitimate concerns regarding the cultural competence of mental health providers. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can be your authentic self while exploring your thoughts, feelings, dreams and struggles.

Therapy is an act of kindness towards self, a process that will help you explore your authentic essence and gain insight into the areas of your life that are out of alignment and causing distress. Therapy is not a magic elixir, but in a warm, non-judgmental environment where you feel free to be your authentic self, it can provide you with clarity on how to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Taking the first step towards healing, empowerment and freedom can be scary and intimidating.  Trust me, I get it!  When you are ready, we can take the journey to a better, more fulfilling life together!
