psychotherapist

Imagine a space where you are the leader of your world, and I am here to help you navigate it. Together, we will explore, understand, and transform your experiences into a journey of self-discovery and growth. In our sessions, I act as an active participant, working alongside clients to foster self-discovery and understanding. My approach is warm, curious, and challenging, creating a space where clients feel safe to explore and grow. Therapy is about people uncovering their inner strengths and navigating life's challenges. By providing a non-judgmental space, I help clients reflect on their experiences and develop new insights.

 

I specialize in working with individuals who are navigating significant life transitions, whether it's recent or in the past. My experience includes supporting clients through identity exploration, grief and loss, and anxiety. My passion for therapy stems from my struggles of homelessness, the death of my father, and acceptance and belonging from my family.

 

I want you to know that your story is unique and valuable. My approach is centered on empathy and genuine connection. I believe in creating a space where you feel comfortable sharing your experiences and challenges without fear of judgment. Together, we will navigate your path to healing and growth. Let's embark on this transformative journey together.
