About This Project

Many of us, walk through life feeling as if our experiences are only unique to us and we wish we had the community that is needed to withstand life’s challenges. As your therapist, my goal is help you to give yourself a lot more grace and to be curious about all the different parts that make you who you are and that drive your decision making. I typically utilize several therapeutic models such as Humanistic approach, strength based approach and Psychodynamic approach to gain an understanding of how your past experiences, cultural upbringing, and values are impacting your current functioning. I am happy to be fluid in my approach as we find our groove in our therapeutic relationship.

 

During our time together, we will gently examine and process your thoughts, limiting beliefs, and how you view yourself in the broader world around you. As we unpack the issues that brought you to therapy, we will identify what is already working and what you feel are changes you can make to create the life you desire. I am here to provide a safe and empathetic space for you to be vulnerable, to feel heard and to feel empowered. I have training in Motivational Interviewing, Strength based approach, and Psychodynamic therapy. In our work together, you will gain insight and hopefully, our sessions will become one of the many bright spots in your weekly routine.

 

When I’m not working, I love reading novels written by authors of color from around the world. These novels inspire me to travel and help me to keep in mind that we are all connected by our human experiences despite our geological locations. I also enjoy a good Golden Girls marathon!
