“Asking for help is never a sign of weakness. It’s one of the bravest things you can do. And it can save your life.” ― Lily Collins


My practice


As a modern clinical counselor, therapist, and life coach who approaches treatment with a multicultural perspective and a compassionate disposition, I seek to understand the context of a client’s life to form a relationship based on genuine interactions and understanding. I work with each client to create an individualized treatment plan to address the client’s primary mental health, behavioral, or functional concerns, and I adjust the treatment plan throughout the therapeutic relationship based on the client’s feedback.

Use Telehealth tools to have your session from home.

“Probably the biggest insight… is that happiness is not just a place, but also a process. Happiness is an ongoing process of fresh challenges, and it takes the right attitudes and activities to continue to be happy.”

Treatment Philosophy


I consider the client–counselor relationship to be the most important part of the therapeutic process. Both the client and I contributing to the treatment course will be far more successful than one of us dominating the conversation. I truly value my clients’ opinions when formulating treatment plans because they know best what options will and will not work for them. Naturally, all successful relationships are based upon a shared respect between two people, and I approach the client–counselor relationship no differently.
