“Boundaries are the distance at which I can love you and me simultaneously.”- Prentis Hemphill
The therapy environment I provide is a place of self empowerment, accountability, care, and growth. My approach to therapy is client centered, strengths based, and trauma informed. My starting foundation has been Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and I am continuing to increase my knowledge of other modalities. I am committed to the process of lifelong learning and self growth as a therapist and person.
I have worked in a variety of different communities as a community advocate, case manager and therapist. I have provided services such as housing assistance to individuals living with HIV/AIDS, no barriers food assistance at a pantry run by and for LGBTQA+ people, mentorship for LGBTQA+ youth and young adults, and after school homework help for Spanish speaking families.

(I can speak basic conversational Spanish. It is my goal to be fully fluent in Spanish that way I can fully provide services in both English and Spanish.)
