About me

You have done enough! It is time to "be". I have coined it "Be Me" Time. Being is an allowing of self- nurture. Being is stillness. Being is thinking and feeling the ache, instead of avoiding it. I know it is scary, yet I am your cheerleader, who encourages you to explore your resources to ease the hurt. I will hold your hand when you learn your worth and your whole life is turned upside down. You can have a reality where you are the Superhero that first saves and celebrates yourself. It is time to stop the self-abuse. You deserve a life of lavish beauty and connection as you effortlessly "be" you.

I am an Integrative Therapist and Coach for Entrepreneurs. We investigate all the components of your life, which include physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and professional life. The goal is to integrate these components, build your social support system, and bring together all partners to hold you accountable to being the best version of yourself.

I use Person Centered therapy as the core of our work. Then, I splash Integrative Therapy (utilization of all therapy types based on the individual) into our work. I am specialized in Trauma-Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person/ Child-Centered Play, and Expressive Arts Therapy. You deserve the best.
