Personal Statement

My objective is to empower you to take ownership of your story in order to thrive, and for your family to be restored to one another through the healing space of therapy. I value whole-person care, taking into account the context of your family, life, culture, and beliefs. I utilize evidence-based practices and compassionate therapy by helping you take ownership of your relationships and recovery process as you seek to meet your goals.

I have experience working with a variety of clients with different backgrounds and cultures. I am confident in my work with children as young as five years old to elderly adults. I’ve worked with children, adolescents, adults, parents, couples, families of origin, adoptive families, foster families, and groups. I believe that we are all connected to one another and can help one another heal through our relationships. I take a special interest in incorporating spirituality into my practice if that is important to you. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you in authoring your story and achieving the narrative you long for.
