About Me

I have worked in the substance use, and mental health field for 5 years as a counselor but 8 years overall. I love my this field due to the fact that mental health has been stigmatized for so long that I can be an advocate for everyone having a voice can help empower another person through their self discovery and journey again. If you are a client who is struggling with your darkness and self awareness, boundaries, codependency, addiction, dual diagnosis mental health issues I am here to help you. I graduated from South university undergoing extensive training in my field and my approach is fitted to match each persons/ couples personality, communication style, and to continuously be empathetic to your needs. I love helping clients come out of their depression, anxiety, and more and seeing their potential and find their purpose in this world.I love using approaches of DBT, CBT, Reality therapy, Motivational Interviewing and understanding the family systems. My goal is to help everyone become better versions of themselves and build self awareness, boundaries, communication skills, and overall self worth all while tackling this journey with them. I look forward to being on this journey with you.
