"You are tired of feeling overwhelmed by the demands of everyone and everything around you. You are ready to make some changes, but not sure exactly where to start. I am passionate & skilled at assisting you with sorting through family of origin issues, & then interrupting cognitions that have kept you from the life & relationships that you deserve! I am also trained in perinatal mental health. I can support you through pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, & postpartum. Whoever & Wherever you are on your life's journey, you don't have to live unfavorably in any way.

My approach in supporting you begins with learning about your present, exploring your past, & uses what I've learned about you to help you create the future you'd like with an enhanced self-awareness & new skills for life's challenges. I have special insights for people of color, professionals, perinatal mental health (men & women), and my LGBTQ+ family.

I am committed to using my clinical expertise, along with my humanity, to support, validate, & gently challenge you to disconnect from things/ideas that no longer serve you. Regardless of the stage of life you are in, or the setting that presents you with the most challenges, let's get you to a space where you are living your life with intentionality.

I am also highly skilled at assisting fellow therapists with case consultation; support that we all need to remain the best at what we do.

I've also added business coaching to my list of services, as I've helped many achieve their business launch goals and remain motivated, processing internal barriers that we're holding them back. I'm prepared to offer this service to current clients and new ones, alike!"
