5 years of experience

Your Voice, Your Power – Your Path to Transformation. ☀️ As a dedicated Licensed Independent Social Worker, Supervisor (LISW-S) therapist, I specialize in working with teenagers and adults, fostering resilience and growth. I am authentic to who I am and always remind you that we are both equals. I am also committed to supporting the LGBTQIA community, ensuring a safe and affirming space for their unique journeys. It’s okay to not be okay. End the stigma and talk about it. Do you feel alone and stuck inside your head? Anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, body image, etc? I’m here to help foster your confidence and remind you that you are not alone. You are strong and you can get through this. I know the light in the tunnel seems far, but we will both guide through to find the shine again. I am a person, friend, daughter, mom, and partner. I didn’t just read a book to get into this career. I have experienced life adversities that made me want to help others. I became the adult I needed when I was younger. I am passionate about advocating for mental health and people’s rights. Everyone should have their voices heard. If you feel you lost your voice or don’t have one, then you came to the right place. Your voice will be heard every step of the way.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In the initial therapy session, clients can anticipate a warm and confidential environment where we'll establish a foundation for our therapeutic journey. We'll discuss the goals and expectations of therapy, addressing any questions or concerns they may have. I'll seek to understand their unique experiences, challenges, and aspirations, encouraging open communication. Together, we'll explore the factors that led them to seek therapy and begin to outline a personalized treatment plan. Clients can expect a collaborative and non-judgmental space, where their voice is central, and our conversation aims to foster understanding and insight. By the end of the first session, clients often gain a clearer perspective on their concerns and a sense of empowerment as we embark on the path toward positive change.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My approach is grounded in trauma-informed, evidence-based practices that guide individuals toward healing and well-being. I utilize evidence-based methods to monitor your mental health symptoms and assist with identifying your strengths. I enjoy creative treatment methods and always listen to your feedback/comfortability. If a method is preferred or not working for you, I can easily be flexible to change the treatment approach.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

As a therapist, my strengths lie in a multifaceted approach that prioritizes your well-being. I bring a wealth of experience in trauma-informed practices, ensuring that our sessions are conducted with sensitivity and understanding. I am known for my creativity, which allows me to adapt therapeutic techniques to suit your unique needs and challenges. I genuinely embrace your strengths and authenticity, recognizing the value in your individuality. My empathetic nature is grounded in my understanding of life’s adversities, and I acknowledge that the journey is not always easy. I am dedicated to ensuring that each session ends on a positive note, never leaving you in a bad headspace. With direct and honest communication, I guide clients in developing assertive language to advocate for themselves effectively. Constructive criticism is something I welcome, as I am not afraid to admit if I make a mistake. Ultimately, my goal is to provide you with a supportive and empowering therapeutic experience, where your growth and well-being are the top priorities. I have an exceptional ability to connect with and support individuals dealing with a wide range of mental health challenges, including anxiety, autism, ADHD, mood disorders, and more. My empathetic and compassionate approach creates a safe and nurturing space for my clients to openly express their thoughts and feelings. My deep understanding of these conditions allows you to tailor your therapeutic techniques to meet the unique needs of each individual, fostering a sense of trust and progress in their healing journey. My commitment to helping others navigate the complexities of their mental health issues makes me absolutely love my passion in what I do.
