About me

I believe that the things we have been through do not have to be in vain. I became a therapist because I wanted to use my own experiences to help others strive, not only to survive but to thrive after horrendous events. During an internship opportunity in my Master's degree program, I found that I as a survivor, as well as a professional, became incredibly empowered and motivated to embark upon social change. I have seen immense healing in so many areas of my career thus far and it just keeps growing. That was only the beginning of that realization of the potential we all have for healing within. Since this start, my vision has expanded and the experience I’ve gained in treating people with an eclectic approach. I always meet my clients where they are and include them in their treatment as experts on themselves. I’m looking forward to working with you on improving your quality of life!
