About me

I'm a LMFT with over 10 years experience working with at-risk youth, families and young adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns to include; anxiety , depression, life changes, family conflict and parenting issues. I also, have helped clients dealing with physical, emotional and sexual trauma, as well as young adults just starting out in their careers.

I got into counseling because I wanted to help others. I realized at a young age people felt comfortable talking to me about their problems. In life, no one is immune from trials and tribulations. However, I believe every hurdle we overcome makes us that much stronger/ confident. I use both CBT -Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Humanistic Therapy with my clients. I use CBT because I believe we can always restructure how we see the world and make changes in our behavior for the better. Also, Humanistic Approach-I’m an Existentialist, because I believe we are human and we make mistakes. Just because we go down one path and it did not work, out, does not mean we cannot turn around and take another path that is more fulfilling/ rewarding. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am a warm, engaging and compassionate therapist . I do not believe in stigmatizing or labels. If you are seeking therapy you have already taken the first step. Give me the opportunity to support you on this journey.

I look forward to working with you and believe we can truly make progress towards your goals.

Kalisa is caring, compassionate and kind, but will tell me what I need to hear. She has really helped me manage my triggers and is always reminding myself to put myself first and to take care of myself. She's like a therapist, mom and best friend all rolled in to one! I'm so grateful we were matched.
