Mental Health Therapist
“True compassion means not only feeling another’s pain but also being moved to help relieve it.” – Daniel Goleman.
It is my professional intention to provide a holistic approach to health and healing with use of diversified clinical interventions including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Solution Focused Therapy as well as Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. As a person-centered therapist, I value individualism and diversity, more importantly acknowledging lived experiences. My primary objective is to aid in supportive assurance for true development of self-authenticity. Honoring self-awareness and providing evidenced based clinical strategies, permits for the fulfillment of self-actualization, validating our innate skill for inner healing. All are welcome and embraced in sacred spaces. I aim to provide therapeutic interventions for adults and adolescence with co-occurring disorders highlighting the appreciation of transformative experiences. I look forward each day to providing hope and inspiration to anyone who may be struggling with mental health and substance use concerns. Whether my clinical interactions include group therapy facilitation or individual therapy sessions, I respect the opportunity to be a part of the recovery journey.
“Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it” – Tori Amos
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with family, engaging in Cosmic Yoga and mindful coloring activities with my children.
