Life can be full of transitions that can be rewarding, chaotic and unpredictable. Whether positive or negative, certain life events can leave many of us feeling emotionally paralyzed. Having been there myself, I understand that it can be difficult trying to find balance while navigating through life demands. When faced with challenges and shortcomings, please know that “You” are not alone. Reaching out for help is an act of courage that is necessary to cultivate lasting change. My professional and educational experience has afforded me the opportunity to work with children, teens, parents and adults of all cultural backgrounds facing a multitude of life stressors including, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships and trauma. My clinical training comes from 10+ years of experience in community mental health, social services and correctional facilities. As a therapist, I recognize the importance of providing a safe environment for clients to explore the complexities of life in a non-judgmental way. My approach to therapy is a collaborative effort that helps facilitate cultural sensitivity, personal growth and empowerment skills through affirmative goal setting. I believe that self -care is a personal responsibility. The decision to seek therapy is one of many steps taken to achieve emotional wellness. Congratulations, I look forward to working with you. Focuses on relationships issues, anxiety , depression and low self-esteem
