As a woman of color and an ally to the LGBTQIA community and sex workers, I pride myself on providing a welcoming, safe space where I listen to clients with compassion and non-judgment while challenging them to move forward. I work with adult-aged individuals and couples who are facing the desire to improve the quality of their lives. I have worked with an array of people coping with communication issues, interpersonal challenges, anxiety, and depression. I use multicultural perspectives, along with CBT, DBT, and mindfulness techniques to promote change in how individuals view themselves, and the Gottman method to assist couples in reducing conflict. My role is to aid in exploring how symptoms and behaviors are affecting a client or a couple and assess what changes can be made. And, change is often possible.
