What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including Addiction, Anxiety, Autism, Behavioral Issues, Chronic Illness, Coping Skills, Depression, Grief / Loss, Life Transition, Self Esteem, Stress and Women’s Issues.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

As a young woman of color navigating through life, I understand that it takes bravery and strength to commit to confronting your most difficult challenges and that reaching out for help can often be scary.
