“Be Kind because everyone you meet is fighting a battle that you know nothing about.”

Most people come to therapy because life, as the way it is currently being lived, is just not working for them anymore and they know that things have to change and deep down inside they know that things can be better. Life can be more joyful, peaceful and hopeful.

During my training and experience thus far as therapist, I have had the privilege of working with clients in multiple settings ( a transitional shelter, a church, a medical center, a counseling center on a University campus as well as working with home based clients,) and I have learned that people, from all walks of life, cherish a context where there is safety, compassion, empathy, and challenge. I have worked with men, women and children, those struggling with relational conflict, life transitions, parenting concerns, work/life balance, grief, anxiety and depression and I have seen some changed and transformed lives in the process.

Some therapist are trained believing that they are the experts on your life, knowing what is best for you in any given situation, helping you solve your problems. That’s not me. I practice a collaborative style of therapy, that is strength based, and client and growth focused. I will offer you a space where I will treat you as a person and not as a problem. I will take your story, your struggle, your strengths, and your challenges seriously. I embody a style of therapy that is collaborative and conversational, strength based, and above all always client focused.
