Ruth Bader Ginsburg once said, “So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great, good fortune.” I strongly believe in the inner strengths of the human being through empowerment and resiliency. My goal is to help you understand that prioritizing your own emotional well-being is the first step towards a happier, healthier life.

I have extensive experience working with young children and teens, using Play Therapy, CBT, Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing. Prior to working with Wellness Counseling, I engaged in the academic environment as a School Social Worker. This experience allowed me to advocate for the needs of children with disabilities, children who have experienced trauma, as well as children living in poverty. I also specialize in helping young adults with anxiety, depression, life changes, relationship issues, trauma, grief, and school/work issues through CBT, Psychodynamic, Person-Centered, and Solution-Focused modalities. As a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I am passionate about assisting clients with identity acceptance. It is through counseling that I have found peace in my own life and this journey has inspired me to empower my clients through their own therapeutic journeys.
