Have you felt unheard or unseen by your doctor? Perhaps you are worried about an upcoming surgery or are dealing with trauma after an operation. Maybe you are also dealing with the stress of having a physical disability and are trying to lie in a world that requires you to adapt. In all of what you are feeling right now, maybe you are dealing with major life transitions, the loss of your identity, or self-esteem issues. You want to live a life just like everyone else, but you deal with anxiety and wish you can control your negative thoughts. You want to accept who you are, and live your life to the fullest with no regrets.

My primary focus is working with older teens, young adults, adults, the elderly population as well as people with disabilities. I also work with clients who have issues related to life transitions, codependency issues, trauma/PTSD, anxiety, chronic pain/illness, social skills development, and obsessive-compulsive issues.

I specialize in clients both with and without disabilities with self-esteem issues, trauma (which includes medical trauma), co-dependency, and life transitions. In sessions, I also incorporate the use of the creative arts to facilitate freedom of expression to learn how to live life to the fullest.

 

As someone with a physical disability (I have a form of dwarfism), it is easy for me to empathize with my clients. My background is in disability advocacy as well, and I am one to always advocate and fight for my clients. One of my favorite quotes is, “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” by Viviane Greene. This quote reminds me of how one can move through adversity in life. I help my clients on their journey toward working through adversity in their lives.

MS., LPC-Associate

Supervised by Candice Holloway, LPC-A

I see therapy as a collaborative effort. Two humans with different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and beliefs work together to establish a direction for therapy that aligns with the client’s goals and evolving needs. This approach is most successful when both parties engage in sessions as genuine, authentic individuals. Consequently, I am
committed to fostering a therapeutic environment that allows for open communication, trust, exploration, and growth.

 

When working with clients, I use a trauma-informed Gestalt and existential approach. Specifically, this means we focus on thoughts, feelings, sensations, behaviors, and images that arise in the “here and now” during sessions, discussing and acting them out in real time to see how past experiences influence the client’s current, day-to-day life.

 

As difficult and painful emotions, memories, or sensations arise for the client, we work together to contain and process the experience, allowing the client to move into a more balanced, relaxed state of being. From here, the client develops a sense of understanding, meaning, and ownership over their history, which informs how they live outside the
therapy room.

 LPC-Associate
Supervised by Katrina Daneshvar, LPC-S

I believe in therapy as a powerful tool to help individuals navigate
the myriad stages of life, leading to growth and positive
transformation. Together, we can traverse these changes, helping your
family flourish in the face of life's trials and triumphs.

A fundamental cornerstone of my practice is the promotion of a
judgement-free zone, a haven for all individuals—children, teens,
young adults, and families. 

 

I strongly believe that everyone deserves equal access to mental health services and should be treated with respect and compassion. My goal is for you to feel seen, valued, and heard in our interactions. I want you to feel encouraged to schedule an appointment with me, knowing that your journey to better mental health will be taken with care, understanding, and professionalism.
