About Me

Welcome! Are you looking for support? Want to make a change in your life? I'd love to join you on your journey. I’m passionate about helping people heal and achieve their personal goals, hopes, and dreams. To me, counseling is an individualized process where I get to know you for the unique person you are to best offer support, collaborative problem solving, and resources to help get you where you want to go. People find me to be warm, compassionate, sincere and non-judgmental. I approach my work with holistic wellness in mind and am sensitive to the cultural backgrounds/intersectional identities of those I have the privilege of working with. Because of my expertise and commitment to empowering others, you can build upon your own inherent ability to navigate tough circumstances and the challenges life throws our way in work with me.

I received my Bachelor’s in Human Development & Social Justice and my Master’s of Social Work at Southern University at New Orleans. As an LCSW/LICSW, I'm licensed in Washington, Oregon, Utah, and Arizona with over 8 years experience in counseling. I use a variety of approaches including narrative therapy, existential therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, EMDR, solution focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, harm reduction creative expressive therapies, play therapy, and more. I have experience working with all ages- from birth to elders. My experience includes training other counselors, work in counseling centers, in integrated healthcare, in major teaching/research universities, in hospice/homecare, in non-profits, in schools and more in rural and urban areas. Some specialty areas of mine include life transitions, spirituality, trauma, crisis, grief, loss, depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use, relationships, parenting, LGBTQ issues, marginalization, among others.

Outside of this work, I enjoy spending time in nature, growing food, being with my loved ones, creative projects, and exploring new places.

Everyone deserves support and I look forward to connecting! My biggest hope for our work together is that you will achieve the healing and growth you’re looking for to feel better and experience happiness in your moments in life.
