I believe that we all have the capacity for healing within ourselves. I specialize in working with children and families. My goal is to instill hope and healing for clients presenting with concerns related to post-traumatic stress, attachment, anxiety, grief/loss, depression, disruptive behaviors, social skills, parenting, and/or relational distress.

I use a client centered, trauma-specific, holistic, and developmental approach to psychotherapy. I utilize therapeutic techniques such as EMDR, child-parent psychotherapy, TFCBT, sand-tray, play therapy, expressive arts, and mindfulness. I am a certified PCIT international therapist and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.

I am a compassionate, easy-going, intuitive, and heart-centered therapist, mother, and friend. My goal is to inspire and empower you while creating a safe space for you on your healing journey. Hope to hear from you soon.

Clarity makes life a bit simpler! Everyone deserves to heal and thrive.

I take a holistic approach and focus on treatment of the whole person. That is, I consider social and mental factors, rather than just the symptoms.

My goal is to help you shine in life and find meaning and purpose with a newfound calling.

I am an avid hiker, camper, and kayaker and believes self-care in nature rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul.

In addition, to this self-care regiment I believes in self forgiveness and self-love.  “In order for me to love anyone or forgive anyone I have to first love myself unconditionally and be able to forgive myself.” 

I have a wide range of clinical experience at various settings including residential, community mental health and private practice. I enjoy working with older children (14+),  adults, and families. 

Like you, I am not just a counselor, I wear many hats in life. I am a mother, wife, sister, friend, animal lover, cancer survivor, entrepreneur, and business leader, with first-hand experience in immigration, interracial marriage, and the loss of a parent, to name a few.

I enjoy gardening, hiking, photography, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and love good food and drink. I appreciate the simple things in life and am gifted with the ability to find the strength and potential in others.

I believe a great therapeutic relationship between counselor and client is vital to any successful transformation process.

I hope you will find my brief introduction helpful and I am looking forward to helping you in your transformation journey.
