HEAL & THRIVE
Since 2012, I’ve helped my counseling clients break through the obstacles that were holding them back from in life, challenging them to face their unique brilliance and transform their life! They were willing to dive deep into what makes them more fulfilled and most importantly how to keep doing it!

As a clinical Licensed Mental Health Counselor, my professional philosophy is a person-centered, strength-based approach in counseling. In my clinical practice, I offer sacred creative space with the application of evidenced-based modalities in addition to expressive arts modalities and mindfulness interventions.
