My passion for mental health is driven by a deep desire to alleviate suffering and promote well-being. Witnessing the transformative power of compassionate care motivates me to continue my work. I aim to impact those I serve by providing empathetic, evidence-based support, fostering resilience, and empowering individuals to reclaim their lives. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients feel understood and valued. Through education and advocacy, I hope to reduce stigma, raise awareness, and contribute to a more inclusive society where mental health is prioritized and accessible to all.

In my practice, I regularly utilize psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy to address clients’ diverse needs. Psychotherapy provides a foundation for exploring emotions and experiences, fostering self-awareness and healing. CBT is instrumental in helping clients identify and challenge distorted thought patterns, promoting healthier behaviors and coping strategies. Solution-Focused Therapy emphasizes clients’ strengths and resources, encouraging a forward-looking perspective to quickly identify and achieve goals. By integrating these approaches, I tailor my treatment to each individual’s unique circumstances, fostering resilience and empowering clients to create meaningful, lasting change in their lives.

I greatly enjoy working with diverse populations within the LGBTQ+ community. This community’s unique experiences and challenges drive my passion for providing inclusive, affirming care. I am committed to creating a safe, supportive environment where individuals feel understood and respected. Addressing issues like identity exploration, discrimination, and mental health disparities, I aim to empower clients and promote resilience. Additionally, I appreciate the richness of diverse perspectives and the opportunity to learn from each person’s unique journey. My goal is to foster a sense of belonging and contribute to the well-being and empowerment of the LGBTQ+ community. Throughout my professional journey, I’ve had the privilege of working with a wide range of clients, gaining insights that profoundly inform my practice. My experience with the LGBTQ+ community has taught me the importance of creating a non-judgmental, affirming space for clients to explore their identities. Working with the African American community has deepened my understanding of systemic barriers and the need for culturally sensitive care. Personally, I’ve seen the transformative power of empathy and resilience in overcoming adversity. These experiences have shaped my approach, emphasizing the importance of individualized, compassionate care that respects each client’s unique background and journey.
