Hi there! I am a licensed professional counselor who specializes in obsessive compulsive disorder, other anxiety related disorders, PTSD, and body focused repetitive behaviors. As someone who also battles with mental health illnesses, I understand how debilitating they can be which fuels my passion to help individuals progress from surviving to thriving.
My main goal in life is to increase mental health accessibility for underrepresented minority populations and to decrease the stigma in those populations. I see going to therapy the same as going to your PCP for your annual check up. One quote that resonates with me is “I think it’s really important to take the stigma away from mental health… My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don’t know why I wouldn’t seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth?” from Kerry Washington and I agree with her wholeheartedly. I'm also a die-hard Dallas cowboys fan, but please don't hold that against me.
