During difficult times, the word “unravel” resonates with most of us. As human beings, at
some point, we are bound to experience life stressors, trauma events, relationship
difficulties whilst it is not uncommon for our lives to unravel. I know that no single
approach is the right fit for every individual, and a range of modalities is key to guide
and assist in finding resolution and balance. My great passion is bringing healing to the
people who have been through traumatic/stressful experiences. I believe in meeting
clients where they are and in creating a collaborative therapeutic relationship. I provide
gentle guidance, therapeutic expertise, education, tools, and skilled insight, while the
client provides the willingness to share their story, explore learn, and give their best
effort towards accomplishing their unique treatment goals.

I bring 15 years of clinical experience to the Sunstone Counseling practice. I specialize
in working with trauma, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, relationship issues,
and situational stress for a diverse adolescent and adult population. I use an
individualized and collaborative approach with my clients whilst committed to helping
each on his or her unique journey toward wellness. My clinical approaches include
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Oriented Therapy, Person-Centered
attachment-focused, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Play therapy. I have
worked in various roles as a Crisis Counselor for at-risk youth and their family members,
Foster Care, and Clinical Outpatient Therapy. My passion and compassion for helping
people are rooted in understanding life’s experiences and how we individually express
and interpret our being. My motto and purpose in life have been to assist individuals in
self-expression, in a safe and compassionate space. I am here to believe in my clients
until they are ready to believe in themselves. Each individual has a unique journey and
story to tell, my eclectic approach allows a diverse range of life experiences to be
