I am an empathetic EMDR trained AMFT/APCC passionate about facilitating excellent client care. Dedicated to helping people help themselves to improve the quality of their lives and their relationships.

“Together we will explore the root cause of your struggles and find alternative and healthier ways to cope. From challenging life transitions, anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I operate from a culturally sensitive, trauma-informed lens, focusing on how unique experiences, challenges, and mental well-being is impacted.”

“We will build upon your strengths that are inherently present as we collaborate on your path to emotional healing and wellness. There is no one-size fits all approach to therapy. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities, including: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused-CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

My approach is client centered and is rooted in compassion, trust and understanding .”
