Dedicated to enhancing mental well-being, I am a dedicated mental health counselor who brings compassion and empathy to my practice. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling and have accumulated a wealth of experience working with diverse populations. My journey began at a not-for-profit agency, where I provided mental health services to individuals facing various challenges. This foundational experience allowed me to develop a holistic and empathetic approach to counseling.

Previously, I served as a high school counselor, where I was passionate about supporting adolescents through the complexities of their formative years. I created a safe and nurturing environment where students could explore their emotions, overcome obstacles, and achieve personal growth. My approach is client-centered, integrating evidence-based techniques tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual.

I believe in empowering my clients, fostering resilience, and promoting overall mental health
