Profile
“Many people struggle to navigate life’s challenges and it is important that you feel supported while confronting these obstacles.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Coming from a Haitian culture, going to therapy is almost unheard of. I have witnessed family members struggle with mental health with no support system and I wanted to become a therapist to break that cultural taboo. Many people struggle to navigate life’s challenges and it is important that you feel supported while confronting these obstacles. In cultivating a supportive and therapeutic relationship, it is my goal to help you reach your goals.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work from a client-centered and holistic approach and believe in the importance of meeting you where you are. Reaching out for support is a courageous and admirable step. I will accompany you on the journey toward healing and growth; together, we will break through barriers and uncover meaningful and lasting change for a more fulfilling life
