I am here to serve you. To improve the lives of those I serve, I align best practices in the clinical field with natural and holistic practices. I tap into your strengths, including the positive and powerful cultural beliefs, values, norms, and practices that can aid the therapeutic process. Most importantly, I provide a safe, comfortable, and insight-oriented therapeutic space for my clients to work through life issues and have real talk using a warm and down-to-earth approach.

I help people unlock their full potential and tap into their inner strengths so they can feel better, improve their relationships, successfully achieve goals, solve their own problems, and live life more powerfully. Through a holistic approach, I use cognitive-behavioral and narrative principles, the creative arts, mind-body techniques, spirituality, and cultural strengths to help people overcome adversity and life problems, manage symptoms, and achieve success. When desired, I use music, rhythm, movement, dance, art, creative writing, and mindfulness as powerful tools to aid the healing and change process and promote a healthy flow of energy. By focusing on the whole self – mind, body, and spirit – I am able to assist children, adolescents, families and couples in maximizing their full potential.
As a dancer and former athlete, I understand the benefits of movement and rhythm (vibrational energy) in relieving stress, restoring balance, and promoting optimal health and functioning. I also believe that culture is one of the greatest strengths we have as individuals. I am committed to providing a safe and creative space for clients to increase self-awareness, express emotions, release stress, manage conflict, renew the spirit, and successfully overcome challenges. I love what I do and feel honored to support the transformation of others. I’d be honored to partner with you and/or your family to help you achieve your goals and have greatness.
“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”
