About Me

I have over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. I decided to become a counselor because I care about others, I'm a good listener and people seem to open up to me easily. These natural skills combined with the education and knowledge gained through study and training, combine to provide an opportunity to facilitate healing. I specialize in depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, substance abuse and trauma. I am EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and CBT trained. I use Person-centered approach to honor the person sitting in front of me as the authority of their life. I address the client's concern(s) using Solution Focused approach, which minimizes the amount of time required to process the concern and develop a resolution.

The best therapist I have had in my life. Never, stayed with the same therapist for that long. It has been more than a year so far and I am so happy with the growth I am going through. She helped me with my addiction and I have been sober for more than 10 months, and helped me with other issues I had related to thoughts, feeling, and accepting who I am. I am very thankful to her and grateful for having her as my therapist!
