Profile
“I am enough and I want you to know the same!”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I began this journey after meeting Dr. Deborah in the sixth grade; she planted a seed of belief in myself. Little did I know that this encounter would begin to knock me down. However, through the peaks and valleys of life, I never stopped believing in myself and the work that I do. I am enough and I want you to know the same! I have a bachelor’s in both sociology and psychology, which opened the door for me to study about people and the places we exist. I went on to get my master’s in social work because I wanted to help people navigate those spaces.
What should someone know about working with you?
Working with me means doing the work that you are worthy of. No one type of therapy fits all but I do want you to put in the work so that you can relish in the rewards. I will laugh with you and cry with you but I will also challenge you if needed. I like to give assignments to keep the flow of knowledge going but you choose how to approach these. I typically work with couples and individuals.
What am I looking to teach my clients?
I want to teach you the power of transcendence. This is the idea that we can all overcome our present. Although life is filled with feelings of inadequacy and failures, we are all connected by this truth and we can all climb out of it.
