    I am committed to providing Cognitive Behavioral & Solution Focused Therapy, offering compassionate support and guidance during challenging times. I understand that seeking help can be daunting, and I am here to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can freely express yourself. My goal is to assist you in overcoming obstacles and achieving your life goals and aspirations by tapping into your resilience, strength, and potential.

    Having earned a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology (2012) with a concentration in Marriage & Family Therapy & Counseling, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (2010) with a minor in Criminal Justice specializing in Violence Prevention & Intervention, I bring a solid academic foundation to my practice.
