Therapy Approach:

Do you have an ache inside that you want to investigate in a supportive environment? Are there any past events that cause your unrest?

You have done enough! It is time to "be". I have coined it "Be Me" Time. Being is an allowing of self- nurture. Being is stillness. Being is thinking and feeling the ache, instead of avoiding it. 

I know it is scary, yet I am your cheerleader, who encourages you to explore your resources to ease the hurt. I will hold your hand when you learn your worth and your whole life is turned upside down. You can have a reality where you are the Superstar/ Superhero that first saves and celebrates yourself. It is time to stop the self-abuse. You deserve a life of lavish beauty and connection as you effortlessly "be" you as well as allow wealthiness to pour into your life.

You will identify your values and have a vision that has caught on fire. We investigate all the components of your life, which include physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and professional life. The goal is to integrate these components, build your social support system, and bring together all partners to hold you accountable to being the best version of yourself. I use Person Centered therapy as the core of our work. Then, I splash Integrative Therapy (utilization of all therapy types based on the individual) into our work. I am specialized in Trauma-Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person/ Child-Centered Play, Career/ Entrepreneurial Counseling and Expressive Arts Therapy. 

My clinical skills consist of building relationships and rapport, showing empathy, and providing unconditional positive regard. My scope of practice includes: Trauma in children and women associated with all types of abuse and assault, minority/ Cultural Mental Health, Single Mother/ Women's Issues, LGBT+ Issues, Crisis Intervention, Suicidal Ideation, and Business Execution Coaching.
