I am a multi-passionate clinician using talk therapy as well as other non-traditional methods such as art for healing, music, movement, and mindfulness practices to deliver effective therapy for the times when words cannot express a person”s communication needs! I am a trauma Recovery Specialist and am certified in several evidence-based practices such as DBT, ACT, ART, to name a few!
I work with a diverse poplulation and pride myself on being a people person! I connect with my clients in a way that promotes comfortability and trust!
My experience with children and adolescents has garnered me the moniker, “The Kid Whisperer” as I am able to exhibit patience and empathy in a way that bodes well for the younger population! In addition, I work well with adults, individually as well as couples and families! I hone in on family dynamics and tailor my work to serve the needs of the family internal system!
My easy-going style allows clients to find a safe space in difficult time and begin the process of healing from the inside out!

I first like to inform the client a little bit about what to expect in therapy and how I work. I enjoy getting to know my client appropriately so that I can tailor the therapeutic process to meet the client's needs. I believe it is important for clients to feel comfortable in the space as it promotes the connection needed for one to open up about what is really the core issues that are the underlying causes related to the client's experience in his or her daily life.
I earned my Master of Science in Counseling, Marriage, Family, and child therapy in 2012 at University of Phoenix. After graduating and beginning work with survivors of trauma, I decided to go back to school to increase my understanding of working with those who suffer from traumatic experiences. I earned an advances post graduate degree in Conflict and Non-Conflict Trauma. In addition I have earned Certificates in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Art and Play Therapy. In addition, I studied Trauma from a Psychoanalytic Perspective from the Tavistock Institute in London, England.
