About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist with 8 years of experience. I enjoy working with children, teens and adults. I have had the privilege of working with family and couples as well. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including, anxiety, trauma, abuse,depression, immigration/deportation, parenting problems, bereavement, relationship conflict, Autism, ADHD, OCD and anger problems.

My counseling approach involves providing a safe, supportive, warm and encouraging environment. I believe in treating everyone with respect, kindness and empathy. I believe my role as a therapist is to meet you where you are and guide you to where you want to be, by demonstrating understanding, patience and unconditional positive regard.

My theoretical orientation is person-centered approach. However, I combine cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance commitment therapy when needed. I use an integrated approach when creating a treatment plan to address each person as a whole.

Seeking help is a great first step in a creating a happier and healthier life. If you are ready I am here to help you on your journey.

I look forward to working with you!
