I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, to help address depression, anxiety, perinatal mental health concerns, self esteem and grief & loss issues. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing perinatal mental health, depression, anxiety, self esteem and grief & loss issues . I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you.
I am passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
