I get asked what is my style and modality? To be honest I just love sitting in the company of people who aren't used to feeling seen and heard. Most of Psychology comes from westernized thinking and most theories are by white men. That doesn't fit the population that I work with. I see a person first and then together we come up with goals for therapy. My number one goal is to give you a safe place to own it. When we own our healing journey, it is ours and we can show up authentically in our lives. That's the part of therapy that I LOVE.

My overall goal when working with people is for them to come to a place of understanding & acceptance with decisions already made, and yet to be made.  I make it my goal to provide individuals the tools needed for self-empowerment and improved patterns of living and thinking via humor, honest observation, and respect.  I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Based Therapy.

Office Manager

I am ecstatic to be apart of The Shani Project. My goal is to make the business aspect of therapy less stressful for the staff and clients. My intentions are to help out wherever I can. From managing the day to day activities, or if you have questions about billing, scheduling appointments, insurance benefits, paperwork or office procedures, I am your go-to person. This allows the therapist to worry about therapy and the clients to focus on healing.
