Since I was a young girl, I have aspired to help people. I have worked as a Mental Health Therapist for 15 years with a wide variety of adults, families, children/teens and couples with varying degrees of mental health disorders. I recognize the importance of supporting individuals and families based on their uniqueness and differences. There is no “one size fits all” form of therapy and I pride myself on building a strong relationship with my clients in order to facilitate change and growth.
I have a wide variety of experience in Supervision as well as one on one therapy and I practice a wide variety of techniques and modalities based on each individual. I have 15-Years working in Human Resources and Philanthropic work, which has contributed to my knowledge base.
“My Greatest passion is bringing healing to people who have sustained trauma in their lives. Helping individuals intrinsically find their passion in life to grow and make healthy changes, gain self-love and awareness within.”
