I believe everyone deserves to be happy in life, but the journey to happiness can be a long and hard road. It’s my passion to aid in the navigation for those who find themselves lost and stuck. Let’s face it, we all need help sometimes. I work with adolescents, adults, couples, and families to assist in processing and exploring: depression, anxiety, building boundaries, family conflict, and relational concerns. Issues I specialize in are women's issues, cultural issues, and poor boundaries. I specialize in working with women of color. We often have issues related to our specific populations that impact our mental health and relationships. I think it's valuable to explore how those unique issues impede us on our journey to happiness.
Empowering those I work with is an essential value of mine. You are the expert on yourself and need to learn to trust you know what is best for you. I incorporate a cultural and feministic framework into my therapeutic approach. I provide my clients with a direct yet gentle approach. I invest in each client to create an environment of safety and comfort, tailoring my approach to individual needs. Everyone’s journey will look different. That’s the beauty of it. There’s more than one path to get you to where you want to be.
I utilize a small dog to offer comfort and support to clients who need physical comfort. Not a dog lover, no problem. Little Bear is happy to sit in my lap for the duration of the session. I offer teletherapy sessions on Thursday from 12 pm - 7 pm and in-person sessions on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday from 12 pm to 7 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm.
