Profile
“Everyone has the power to heal themselves; I will serve as a guide to facilitate your development of insight, helping you realize your full potential and live your best life.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
My educational background spans the gamut of mass media, sociology, psychology, social work, political science, and liberal arts. However, I discovered through my journey that I’m most passionate about working with people individually on a one-on-one basis. All my life, I have loved music, art, and different cultures. I have a special connection with music, in particular, because it moves my soul and spirit, inspiring me to uplift others. I believe that words and sounds have the ability to touch our hearts, open our minds to new ideas, move our souls, and lift our spirits. Everyone has the power to heal themselves; I will serve as a guide to facilitate your development of insight, helping you realize your full potential and live your best life.
What should someone know about working with you?
I love being a therapist because it’s incredibly fulfilling and rewarding to help inspire clients to make impactful changes in their lives. I help clients make positive life adjustments to reach their goals and realize their full potential. We accomplish this by building a therapeutic alliance and a relationship based on trust. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, or unexpected life changes, I’m here to help. You are not alone; I can provide the expertise and tools to help you get to where you want to be in life. I provide a warm, judgment-free, empathic, and uplifting environment in my private practice setting. I create a safe space where you can feel comfortable to let your guard down and fully be your authentic self.
How does collaboration with other providers inform your work?
I believe in treating the person as a whole entity. Instead of taking a textbook clinical approach, we will look at your entire life as a whole and see where you can make healthy adjustments that can be measured in a timely manner. I work with other like-minded professionals and practitioners who believe in caring for the person as a whole to create an individual, personalized, and holistic treatment team. Are you currently struggling with sleep, diet, physical issues, or medical issues? All of these factors can impact your mental health, physical wellbeing, and ability to reach your personal goals. How does your lifestyle help or hinder your emotional health and overall wellbeing?
What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
hesitant is totally understandable. Investing in therapy and seeking help doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. It means you are ready to improve your quality of life and start the process of healing and self-care. Instead of dwelling on what’s wrong, I take a goal-oriented approach so you can make positive changes and get where you want to go in life. I create a safe, relaxing, and comfortable environment to help you discover your strengths, develop new insights, and reach your highest potential. I offer a free initial consultation so you can feel confident that we’re a good fit. What are you waiting for?
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
The world is changing rapidly, and we are seeing people discuss mental health more openly as it moves into the mainstream and becomes a priority. People of color are beginning to realize that treating their mental health is a way to address inequities and oppression and that investing in themselves is necessary for their overall wellbeing. I believe raising awareness about mental health reduces stigma and increases accessibility while giving people permission to seek help. As teletherapy becomes more commonplace, people who were traditionally stigmatized for receiving mental health care now have the ability to prioritize it without feeling shame or guilt. The cultural shift in the destigmatization of mental health care elevates communities of color while helping to make the world a better place.
“Together we focus on goal-oriented treatment that can be measured in a timely manner.”
