i am trained in many therapy models. i primarily use a mix of narrative, experiential, and behavioral therapies with clients. i enjoy working with african american and other black populations the most. i also work extensively with teens and their parents to develop better relationships.
i have worked in several clinical settings, from high schools to major hospitals. i currently see clients face-to-face in orem, utah and offer teletherapy services throughout the state.
i am a published author, having contributed pieces to several academic publications. i have also taught lectures, given presentations, and facilitated several discussions around a variety of topics. i am passionate about community work and creating spaces of trust, curiosity, and connection. i tend to focus on the process and energy in the room more than the content.
i currently offer trainings, consultations, and improvement packages focused primarily on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
for me, the act of creating is the embodiment of your beliefs about the world. i grew up taking dance and piano lessons in elementary school. i wrote songs and poetry in middle school. this turned into music production in high school. i am a vocalist and performed in various choirs and musical ensembles growing up. i have been an actress and dancer in feature films, including the errand of angels and high school musical. in graduate school, i began constructing a novel. later, i taught myself how to draw and paint.
learning new means of expression is a staple in my life as my own ways of understanding life change. i coach others through the creative process in an empathic manner to help them become clear on their purpose. my goal is to help you find a sustainable, meaningful creative process.
an essential piece of the meaning-making experience is how attuned we are to our intuition or inner wisdom. my sensitivity to energy has guided me through my struggles and successes. in 2020, i decided to learn how to read tarot and oracle cards, which became a new doorway to improve my mental health. i soon began giving readings to others and have been reading professionally for almost two years. i have given hundreds of readings and receive positive responses from my clients.
