I believe in the power of “ubuntu,” a Zulu phrase that means, “I am what I am because of who we all are.”  As humans, we are all connected and impacted through our relationships. The relationships we have with others can cause us to experience feelings of hurt, anxiety, suffering, pain, joy, and love. I believe that trauma and relational wounds can be mended through healthy and safe relationships.  My goal as a counselor-in-training is to provide my clients with a safe space where they can seek insights, gain understanding, and solve life’s problems without fear of judgment or shame.  

 

I am passionate about partnering with individuals of all ages and backgrounds, especially those who have experienced severe trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, and sexual brokenness.  I have over five years of experience specializing in recovery work with women and minors who have been sex trafficked in the USA and abroad.  I want my clients to know that no matter what they’ve been through, they are worthy of love and restoration, and that hope and healing are possible.  During sessions, I will be using a family systems approach as we work together to accomplish goals and heal from past hurts.  A grace-based Christian worldview can also be incorporated into sessions at the client’s request.
