“It often feels like life hits you from all directions and it can be scary to navigate that alone. I’ve got good news! You don’t have to. Seeking help is the first step to reaching your greatest potential. My passion is people and my purpose is to help.
I’ve always been interested in what makes people who they are. Ever since I was a child, friends and family would confide in me and ask my opinion on various issues in their lives. Even now, my husband jokes, that in the grocery store, strangers stop me to ask for insight or guidance. Everyone has a story and I am honored to walk alongside individuals as long as necessary to listen and help however I am able.
I have always been inspired by my uncle who is a doctor, radiologist and psychiatrist. He taught me how to balance my life while caring for others and holding space for them to heal. I learned how he helped so many individuals and families and I was intrigued. This is when I knew I wanted to help people, just like him.
The client is the expert on their life. I am here to guide, encourage and highlight what I see to help them come to clear solutions. I am a kind-hearted, open-minded, dependable, truly caring person, which makes me good at what I do in my personal and professional life. I have a warm and bubbly personality, making it easier to share your truth. I am honest and direct, which allows us to get to the root of your issue, problem, trauma, or grief more effectively.
My experience lies in working with diverse people to help them grow into who they strive to be and to improve their current situations. My clients include individuals who are struggling with adjusting to a life change or even addressing childhood trauma. I enjoy working with parents who are balancing new identities and transitioning. I have a background and experience with individuals battling substance abuse and addiction. I have been trained to help people with relapse prevention to regain control of their life. I have also worked with couples who are transitioning into long-term committed relationships. I have completed Gottman Level 1 training as well as Imago Brief Couple’s Therapy.
We know that life is hard. Many times, we expect ourselves to do everything and to do it perfectly. Let’s work toward creating realistic expectations for yourself and for others. Remember that you are not alone. I, too, have been through pain, grief, love, happiness, anger, sacrifice, and more in my life. The skills I learned to help you have also proven to help me get through tough times in my life.
Whatever you are feeling is valid. Whatever you may be going through, addressing your mental health takes courage and willingness to grow. You have taken one difficult step by looking for an experienced, kind, understanding therapist. I am here to create a safe space for you to share and grow. Let’s walk through this journey together!”
