I believe that we are all created for a purpose and that we are shaped through the different events we experience through the course of our lives. I desire to help you feel empowered to become the person you want to be. Through counseling, I want to create space for you, so you become aware of your behavioral patterns, emotions, and thoughts. Then, equip you with the right tools to break the unhealthy patterns that get in the way of what you want for your life. I address a number of concerns that include (but are not limited to) depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma. I also work with individuals and couples who are struggling in their relationships.
One of my passions is working with women who have experienced infidelity in their relationships. If you have suffered betrayal of any kind, it is my desire to walk with you on your journey towards healing, rebuilding trust in yourself, and becoming whole again. Betrayal trauma can be caused by several events such as having multiple partners, emotional affairs, and compulsive porn use. Moreover, the lying and gaslighting that accompanies such behaviors is also traumatizing. Throughout your time with me, my goal is to help you find stability and safety again. I want you to feel validated and normalize your emotional responses. Some emotions like anger are hard to understand; part of our work will include giving you a chance to make sense of your anger if you are experiencing it. I will be with you in your pain and walk with you every step of the way. As your therapist, I will help you see and understand yourself better and encourage you to make the necessary changes that you desire for yourself.
