Full Bio

Life comes with so many challenges and struggles that, at times, can overwhelm us and our coping abilities. Seeking help is the first step to improving health and well-being and building confidence that you can handle the challenges that come your way. In our work together I will take an integrative approach to therapy and assessment services that are uniquely tailored to the individual. The aim is not solely the absence of illness or stress reduction but to build a quality of life that helps you feel fulfilled. I work to create a safe, non-judgemental environment using culturally appropriate, trauma-informed care to walk with you on the journey to wholeness and self-growth.
