The only person who can defeat you is YOU. Most of us have endured, been broken and suffered hardships. In my 16 years of practice nationally and internationally in government and private settings, I have assisted my clients in moving forward and growing stronger each day by empowering them. I provide an empathetic, non-judgmental and safe environment for my clients to heal and become resilient through the therapeutic process. In addition to being Licensed as a Mental Health Counselor, I have been a School Counselor for several years, which has made me very aware of the needs of young clients and their families.
I am a certified Dialectic Behavior Therapist (DBT). I thrive on working with both teens and adults and help them overcome various challenges including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, behavioral disturbances, couples conflicts, and familial dysfunction and so much more.
My biggest strength is my multicultural counseling experience which makes me especially emphatic to cultural differences in the context of mental health issues among clients. I am also a Distance Credentialed Counselor and can offer services via HIPPA regulated video conferencing.
Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.

The Benefits of Therapy
Psychotherapy can be an effective tool in providing you with the necessary support and training to overcome the challenges you face. By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life. Many studies have shown throughout the years that psychotherapy is an effective form of treating and managing mental illnesses and other emotional disorders.
As an experienced counselor/therapist, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and move toward a healthy, fulfilling life. Utilizing a variety of approaches including Behavioral, Cognitive/Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Family Systems, Person-Centered, Psychoeducational, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, I will work with you to create a treatment plan that is customized to meet your unique circumstances.
With honesty and compassion, I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion, which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times in the future, as wells as become a more productive and happier person.
