As we go through life, we encounter different individuals that leave an impact. I have met extraordinary people in my professional, academic, and person life and the primary thing they all have in common is this: they have all emphasized that your environment does not control your ability to succeed. YOU are your own enemy and YOU have full control of your choices.
As you and I work together, we will use the resources and strengths that you bring to the table in combination with appropriate therapeutic interventions to help you reach your goals. I take on the role of not only a therapist but also as coach, advocate, and partner in helping you become the best version of YOU.
