I approach therapy with the belief that we all have an internal GPS that is constantly communicating with us. One of the goals of therapy is to help you to reconnect with the unknown, silenced, ignored, or dismissed parts of yourself. It is often a fearful and fiery process, but I believe that through the power of our feelings, self-love and acceptance, we can tap into an infinite eternal awareness.
I am a conscientious, reflective, and thoughtful practitioner that practices from her heart and intuition. I hope to provide you with the emotional and psychological safety needed to help change the way you relate to yourself and experience life from a place of personal empowerment and self-awareness.
If you are committed to the therapeutic process of change and are ready to overcome the emotional and psychological barriers that are holding you back from reaching your full potential, I am here to support you.

The one thing I do daily that supports my mental and emotional well-being is to dance to one of my favorite songs!
The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel-Shinn. It is one of the cornerstones of metaphysics and offers the reader a sense of structure and rules for life's unpredictable moments. She taught that life is a game and in order to play it well, one must learn to understand the universal laws that govern it.
I recharge through self-care Sundays and conversations with my family, friends and godchildren.
