More often than not, people share with me the difficulties they have in asking for help. When I hear this, I’m grateful they have found their way to my office because asking for assistance takes self-awareness and courage, which is already half the battle towards a better life.

My counseling approach is person centered; I believe therapy is an individual process that helps clients safely begin a journey of self-exploration, understanding, adjustment and ultimately happiness. I believe in your ability to guide me through your world and together we can find the best pathway towards your unique goals. I am a compassionate and a genuine counselor that believes in the power of warm, healthy relationships to heal the distress of painful life experiences. I provide a nonjudgmental, safe and specially tailored environment just for you. Above all, I am here for you.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my teenage daughter and visiting family and friends. I love traveling and experiencing new cultures.
