Being trained in Marriage and Family Therapy isn't just about working with couples. It is best to state that relationships are my passion. Be it with the self: your thoughts, fears, concerns, spirituality, etc...or with others: a friend, sibling, partner, etc. Whether it's focusing on anxieties, communication, troubling thoughts, trauma, or depression, I founded One Session at a Time to provide an accepting, safe environment for those who want to challenge themselves in their journey toward self growth either on their own or with another.


In my 14 years of working in community mental health and most recently, as a trauma therapist, I have learned that the therapeutic element that propels us to changing our lives has a lot to do with the connection we can build with a therapist. Finding a safe and inviting space can help us endure the distress of beginning an unknown journey towards healing.

My therapy approaches primarily stem from mind-body modalities such as EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, acculturation problems, relationships issues, alcohol and drug addictions and all types of traumas.

Having a masters degree in both counseling and Art Therapy, my therapy approaches are heavily rooted in art therapy techniques.  Through the use of the creative process, art making and symbolic language, we can better understand ourselves and how we perceive our life, good parts and the bad.  It isn’t always comfortable going outside the regular “talk therapy” and engaging in with art materials, but my goal is to create that safe place for the healing process, empowerment, regression and self discovery.


Through collaboration and exploration, we will work to heal wounds, rewrite old narratives, find your strengths, and learn new coping skills.

At times, our struggles can feel overwhelming. My main goal is to create a space that feels safe and comfortable, in hopes that we can build a trusting and productive therapeutic relationship so you don’t have to carry the heavy stuff alone anymore.

Engaging in therapy creates opportunity to grow, learn, and find acceptance. Even when the work becomes difficult, I'll be there to help you through it. I look forward to being a part of this journey with you.
