" Re-examine all you have been told...Dismiss what insults your Soul." - Walt Whitman
An empath by nature, I bring authenticity, transparency, enthusiasm, humor, openness, respect, and compassion to the therapeutic relationship I have with my clients. My relationship with each client is unique because it is created through meaningful and connecting shared therapeutic interactions which serve as a guide for our work together.
Sessions are tailored to my clients needs, desires and goals. I am a Strength-Based therapist and incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT), Attachment Theory, Spirituality, Mindfulness, and Narrative therapy in my practice. I immerse myself in the process and invite my clients to do the same, I am interactive, without being overbearing and I approach each client with curiosity and interest. The goal is to heal the whole person using a holistic approach working together to develop custom skills/tools that will enable my clients to master their thoughts, protect and attract positive energy, manifest their desires, and heal every layer of their being.
Therapy belongs to my client, this is their journey, and I am honored to walk alongside them part of the way .
I help guide my clients to identify their authentic-self, which is sometimes lost or unknown due to the roles and expectations imposed on them by others throughout their lives. We work on rewriting the old/habitual narratives they have been telling themselves and create a new narrative rooted in strength, confidence, compassion and empowerment. I provide supportive and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges and heal from past trauma.
I am dedicated to working collaboratively with each client around attaining their goals, connecting with self, and creating the beautiful life they desire and deserve!
