• Welcome

    I am invested in a theoretical orientation that emphasizes a more integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to mental health.

    About me

    With 11 years of clinical knowledge, I utilizes a holistic approach to enlighten and educate clients about how mind, spirit and body are interconnected.


    My theory is that when people have hope and can learn to challenge and replace irrational thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, they will be free to experience change. My goal is to meet every personal experience with empathy and to provide support on their journey toward wholeness.

    Public Health is urging everyone to take precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19.

    How is it spread?


    Through droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes and does not take precautions to cover or shield the coughs and/or sneezes.

    Close personal contact, such as caring for an infected person


    What can I do to protect myself and others from respiratory infections like COVID-19?


    • Everyone, particularly those who are 65 and over, those with underlying health conditions, and pregnant women should avoid any non-essential travel, public gathering, or places where large groups of people congregate.

    • Stay home when you are sick.

    • Limit close contact with people who are sick.

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol and rub your hands together for 30 seconds and until your hands are completely dry.

    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).

    • Wear a MASK at all times when outside especially when you come in contact with others.

    • Maintain "Social Distancing" guidelines of 6 ft.
    • Avoid gatherings of 10 or more people.

      How to express sadness

      Expressing your sadness in healthy ways can be a good way to deal with how you are feeling.. Here are a few ways to express your sadness:

      1. Let it out: vocalize your feelings (cry, yell, scream, etc.)
      2. Get creative: Go to Smash/rage room, get out in nature, garden, or crochet/knit.
      3. Let loose: listen to music that reflects your sadness and dance to it.
      4. Put it in writing: Write about your feelings in a journal or keep a sadness diary
      5. Share: Talk about your feelings with someone you trust.

      Ready for your therapeutic journey?

      Therapy is a partnership. Both you and your therapist contribute to the healing process. You’re not expected to do the work of recovery all by yourself, but your therapist can’t do it for you either. Therapy should feel like a collaboration.

      Therapy will not always feel pleasant. Painful memories, frustrations or feelings might surface. This is a normal part of therapy and your therapist will guide you through this process. Be sure to communicate with your therapist about how you are feeling.

      Therapy should be a safe place. While at times you’ll feel challenged or face unpleasant feelings, you should always feel safe. If you’re starting to feel overwhelmed or you’re dreading your therapy sessions, talk to your therapist.
