I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor here to help guide you to and through self-growth, self-exploration and discovering your most authentic self. The journey starts from within, and I am here to simply help guide. Taking that first step towards self-care with therapy can be a really intimidating or even a scary task at first, but it is not by chance or coincidence that you have thought to consider therapy. I believe in incorporating health and wellness into therapy, as self-growth requires a holistic approach, mind, body, and soul. Overall wellness is a key concept in my therapeutic methods as taking care of yourself physically is also an act of self-care and is just as important as tending to your mental health.
My approach is non-judgmental, collaborative, interactive, and compassionate. Through this process, the goal is for each client to gain clarity while feeling heard in a safe environment. I strive to help my clients also understand the connection between mental health and physical health. I do this by collaborating education, living a healthy lifestyle in regard to nutrition, exercise, meditation and mental health. I have a passion for helping individuals with weight and body image issues understand how this can affect one’s mental health from personal experience. I also specialize in helping individuals with a history of trauma, depression, and anxiety. I have been practicing therapy for over 7 years in various settings. I obtained a dual master’s degree in Marriage and family Therapy & Mental Health Counseling from Barry University and have an intensive background in treating substance abuse and individuals involved in the child welfare system. I find joy in helping individuals not only heal but discover their most authentic self to flourish within the life they choose and here to help guide you through your journey.
