When you transform your perception, everything you experience also transforms.
There are various points in life where you might feel anxious, disorganized, frustrated, sadness or confusion, and those are the best times to talk to a a person who is not in your inner-circle, and won't make you feel judged.
My approach to counseling in is one of collaboration. My goal through working together is to help you understand how your circumstances are shaped by past and present relationships, cultural and inter-generational values. I will hold space for you with empathetic curiosity.
I specialize in tailoring each session to individual needs and trauma-informed care, acknowledging that some behaviors and thoughts are guided by events which one might not have been prepared to experience. There are many moments in live and people who influence our thoughts and feelings, and each should be explored carefully.
Sessions with me are compassionate, straightforward, thought-provoking,
and relaxed with just a touch of humor.
I provide support through Video Psychotherapy using evidence-based practices to help you feel more self-aware and hopeful for the next step in life.
I welcome all forms of diversity, religions and alternative lifestyles.
I look forward to working with you!
I started my career in healing in 2011 as an Intern Family Counselor for 2 years in Connecticut at Hartford Hypnosis and Klingberg Family Centers. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2013 from Central Connecticut State University, and have worn many hats ranging from in-home counselor to case manager and social worker.
I've provided counseling to populations including parents, children, couples and elderly, who experienced a wide range of mental or physical barriers. I've helped many people design their best coping skills to process their experiences in life and navigate social services and Social Security systems, healthcare systems and school systems. I have been working for the State of Washington for the last few years, most recently as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor. It brings me great joy to watch clients gain work skills, return to school, further their career and feel a sense of pride contributing to society.
My private practice was created out of the need to feel more grounded in holistic counseling, and I am very passionate about helping people feel attuned to their inner-most needs, in order to approach their loved ones more open, with compassion, a sense of self-confidence and self-worth.
