Message to clients

Collaborating with me involves actively engaging in the healing process. Think of therapy as a workout for your mind; I empower my clients to set at least one goal for each session. My aim is for clients to leave with a deeper understanding than when they started, and I often assign homework for those who find it beneficial.

For those seeking trauma healing, we only begin treatment when you feel comfortable and have mastered grounding techniques for triggering moments. We proceed at your pace, recognizing the potency of therapy, particularly for women of color—an aspect I take pride in.

Let's embark on a journey together to discover new perspectives, nurture resilience, and foster happiness. Your well-being is our top priority, and we are committed to supporting you every step of the way.
