Dear Beautiful Being,
Be not discouraged by your past pain or current tribulation, for you are none other than Love. Be not deceived any longer by the mind’s loveless image of who you are and what you have been given by Love to offer to the world. You have come to begin this healing journey not because you are broken, but because you are ready to see you with your heart. To heal is to see yourself as you truly are – that which is whole. Love is wholeness, and, therefore, you are Love.
You are not fear. You are not hatred for yourself and others. You are neither loveless nor unworthy of being loved. You are not incapable or irrelevant. You are not disgusting or repulsive. You are not desperate or lacking. You are not defective. You are not a diagnosed illness or disease. You are not dirty. You are not shame. You are not in bondage to the false conceptualizations and misconstructions of who you are. You are not the sum of your behaviors. You are not born to die or live in waiting for death. You are not a mistake.
You are a powerful force of good – perfect and precisely placed in time. What is required to unveil your goodness shines within you, even now, for you possess all that you need in order to stand firmly and full of life in your authentic power/ in your glory/ in your wholeness.
The time has come for you to harvest the medicine within you, to see yourself healed, as you are, to hear your heart, to shift into your authenticity, and to transform the mind into a tool that works in service to your healing.
It is, therefore, with profound love, thanksgiving, and celebration, that I write to the wholeness that is you, “Love, be Love, for you are always whole. And wholeness does not exist apart from freedom.”
Let’s begin to cocreate the process of unveiling the Love that is you!

I strongly believes that while all human beings share universal struggles, each patient seeks out psychiatric treatment for unique reasons. I am dedicated to the "individual" and believes in caring for the whole self.

Feeling overwhelmed? Anxious? Depressed?
I've been there.
Whether you're new to therapy or you're a seasoned veteran, beginning with a provider can seem daunting. My goal is to eliminate any reservations you might have, and to witness you write the narrative you want your life to emulate!
I follow mostly humanistic and existential approaches to treatment sessions. These approaches allow you to explore and find your innate ability to heal in the present moment. Also, they enable you to focus on how you can utilize your potential to make meaning of your life while finding wholeness within yourself.
Currently, I specialize in treating clients with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and dissociative disorders such as depersonalization and derealization.
In my personal and professional experience, mental well-being is improved through creating a safe, judgment-free space to express concerns, develop coping skills, and explore thoughts and feelings that contribute to our moods. I'm here to provide that space and help you navigate this explorative journey!
Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Between work, school, parenting, general life obligations, and now, a global pandemic, life can be stressful and overwhelming. Friends and family are all going through their own stressors, and it can be easy to feel unseen, unheard, and invalidated. You deserve a safe space to feel supported where you can speak freely, be validated, process your thoughts and trauma, and grow toward the person you want to be. Therapy is just that place, and I’m so glad you have taken the first step of your healing journey by reading this page.
As a therapist, it’s my role to support you, your child, your adolescent, or your family in healing and growing. We will work together to decide what you want to gain from therapy, and I will provide you with concrete tips and skills to help you achieve your goals. As the client, you are the expert of your own life. Each session, you will provide me with individual puzzle pieces. It is my job to help you put the pieces together to understand the larger picture; this includes your past, your present, and creating a path to attaining the future of your dreams.
