The therapist you NEED is not necessarily the one you WANT. Counseling changed my life. The journey wasn't easy but it was simple... I had to change EVERYTHING about myself. I KNOW that change is possible and INEVITABLE when you have the right people supporting you. ALL people are deserving of love and respect, whether you identify as a racial/ethnic minority, LGBTQI+, or Religious/Spiritual. I am here to help you... FIND YOUR AMAZING life!

If you struggle with anxiety, depression, or you are simply looking to improve your relationships, I can help. My doctoral training gives me the advanced knowledge to assist you when dealing with emotional, behavioral, and psychological issues. Call today and get started on the life you've always wanted.

Whether you are heterosexual or same-gender-loving, my practice can assist you in coming to terms with who you are and finding the best way forward. Life is hard enough, walking this path alone is much harder. Give me a call today, and let's start your journey tomorrow.
