“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor E. Frankl.

Hi there! I’m a dedicated and compassionate mental health counselor committed to guiding each of my clients on their unique journey towards mental well-being. My goal is to provide transformative therapeutic support, grounded in empathy and a client-centered approach. I create a safe space for individuals of all ages to explore their inner selves, emphasizing the resilience they’ve shown thus far and working together to foster even greater strength.

Specializing in providing a nurturing environment for children, I encourage them to express themselves and navigate the challenges of growth. Through a play-based and developmentally appropriate approach, I focus on helping young clients develop essential coping skills and nurture their emotional intelligence.

For adults navigating life’s complexities, my therapeutic services offer a confidential space to explore and address various mental health concerns. I acknowledge the difficult nature of life’s challenges and I am dedicated to supporting you on your journey of personal growth.

In the face of anxiety or the heaviness of depression, my aim is to provide guidance and, most importantly, hope. My approach integrates evidence-based practices, offering practical tools and empathetic guidance. Through collaboration, we will work together to reshape thought patterns, manage symptoms, and rediscover joy and balance in your life.

My therapeutic services cater to individuals of all ages, and the modalities I use are carefully tailored to your unique needs. With Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we collaboratively identify and reshape unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors, fostering positive change. Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is specifically designed for those impacted by trauma, providing a path towards healing for both children and adults. Additionally, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy integrates mindfulness practices with cognitive-behavioral techniques to promote mental well-being and resilience.

Taking that step towards your mental well-being is a courageous act, and I am genuinely invested in supporting you along the way. Together, we will explore your strengths, develop effective coping strategies, and cultivate a resilient mindset. I aim to provide a personalized, evidence-based support tailored to your unique needs, to ensure that your mental health journey is both meaningful and transformative.
