"Thank you for taking the time to consider working with me. I understand that the decision to seek therapy is not one that someone typically arrives at easily. Often this decision comes after an extended period of conflict and suffering in one’s life. Your decision to reach out is not something that I take lightly and I applaud you for your courage in doing so.

I strongly believe that every individual is the expert in their own life. Each individual is endowed with their own unique strengths, gifts, and talents. Often, in our suffering, we can lose touch with these gifts and expertise. We can forget who we are. Above all, I feel that my most important task is to help you get back in touch with this sense of yourself and who you are meant to be. I believe the first real steps toward healing involve you reconnecting (or perhaps connecting for the first time) with your own strengths and gifts.

I have extensive training in working with relationships, couples, families, and individuals from diverse backgrounds. Feel free to contact me for a phone consultation to help you determine if I’d be the right fit for you.

Again, thank you for reaching out. Please check back regularly as this site is updated often."

"I have a diverse background in therapeutic Art, cognitive behavior interventions, and group facilitation. These skills have helped me to have a well-rounded understanding of human behavior and the various modalities through which healing and growth can
occur. My experience as a therapeutic art specialist has helped me learn creative approaches to therapy, including using artistic expression as a means for clients to explore and communicate their emotions.


My academic background and work experience as a behavior intervention specialist provide the platform for developing skills in identifying and addressing challenging behaviors, and employing strategies tailored to each of my client’s needs. I also learned in
my professional career as a group facilitator how to provide my clients support in their personal or professional journeys, which in turn fosters a sense of community and mutual understanding between myself and my clients. These roles and educational
experiences have given me a rich tapestry of insights and techniques I utilize during each session and within my therapeutic practice.


My goal for my clients is to help them find their passion and maximize their full potential. My academic and educational background has prepared me to provide
evidence-based theories to support my work for all individuals, couples, and families regardless of gender, race, sexuality, religion, or ethnicity…


I want to help my clients explore their relationships and goals for the future through self-discovery, healing, and insight."

"I like to establish up front that I am a safe person to correct, call-out, interrupt, disagree and argue with. It will not impact our therapeutic relationship. You are the expert of your own life.

 

My primary approach is Systemic with a strong Social Constructionist influence. Leaning on Narrative and Collaborative Dialogue, I invite the people I work with to consider the unique experiences that they bring to our conversations. Through an Emotionally Focused approach grounded in attachment theory, couples and individuals gain insight into, and transform their emotional reactions within a nurturing and secure setting.

My practice is: Queer/ Trans-affirming, Neurodiversity-affirming, Body positive, Fat positive, Sex positive, Kink-affirming, and Poly/Non-Monogamy-affirming. I work with individuals and relationships.

I work with all ages IF I am conjointly working with the whole system, otherwise I mainly work with adults."

"I am overjoyed to accompany you on your journey to healing and growth. I'm here to offer my unwavering support every step of the way. I am passionate about guiding clients towards becoming in tune with their emotional experiences and addressing life's challenges. I welcome all persons regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, relationship status, etc. I advocate for the growth of persons within marginalized communities, including African Americans, women, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

In my practice, I warmly welcome couples, families, and individuals facing life’s challenges. I want you to know: you are never the problem. As a systemic therapist, I believe in approaching therapy with an open mind, recognizing you as the true expert in your own life. Drawing from a blend of Collaborative, Emotionally Focused, Experiential, and Narrative Therapy, I create a judgment-free therapeutic environment where you feel heard, safe, and understood."
