    Favorite Quote:

    “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brene Brown

    How I Help my Clients:

    I characterize myself as empathetic, caring, and a good listener.  Outside of counseling I like to play tennis, read, and bake. I also love to travel and am hoping to learn more languages, such as Spanish and Italian.

    My ideal client is trying to navigate life transitions so they can be their most authentic self, while also striving for greater personal and relation well-being.  This may mean working through anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, identity issues, as well as multicultural issues.  I help clients, especially those who identify as minority female, discover their true selves and what their authentic life looks like.  We work together to discover your individual values, interests, needs, and boundaries and what you need from relationships, work, and life passions.  I make my clients feel seen and empowered to increase their well-being, on their terms.

    I have the following certifications that are useful tools in my work with clients: Precision Nutrition, Nutrition Coaching Certification-Nutritional Coaching Institute, Level 1 Hormone Health Coaching Certification
