About Me

What is your story? This is the question that echoes through the chambers of my heart, driving my work as a counselor to empower adolescents, youths, and adults to heal, recover, and pursue their life goals. For I believe that every person’s life is a unique narrative that is valuable and worthy of being explored, honored, and witnessed. I get how hard it can be to open up about the innermost thoughts and feelings in therapy. For this reason, my priority in therapy is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and affirming space in which you can show up as your full, authentic self and connect with your inner voice, ultimately finding within yourself the courage and resilience to embrace your demons in life. 


My approach is grounded in narrative therapy, a collaborative and empowering approach that centers you as the experts in your own life. By integrating other modalities like CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Existentialism, I will work with you to reauthor the dominant stories that may shape the feelings of hopelessness and isolation, anxiety, depression, low self-worth, perfectionism, career concerns, existential crisis, or trauma. But my approach doesn't stop here. For I know that so much of our human experience cannot be captured fully by words alone. And so, I also invite you to pick up a brush, colored pencil, music instrument, journal, or yoga mat as a means of tapping into your deep-seated self-beliefs, unearthing new strengths to face life’s ebbs and flows. 


So, what is your story? I invite you to come and share it with me. I’ll follow your lead, and together, we discover the paths to healing and self-discovery that will leave you feeling more connected to your own inner world, more alive, and more vibrant.
