My pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a licensed psychotherapist, which means I am a professional who provides therapeutic services to those searching for mental health support. I am also the founder of Forever Caring Mental Health and am excited to support you on this next step and process. I believe in authenticity, inclusion, and healing. I work well with those who have experienced difficult times, been afraid to reach out, and are looking for someone to help them feel seen for who they are. Here to support you and am forever caring in all the spaces in between.
Here to hold space for you! It has been hard times, to say the least. Take a moment to, pause, and thank yourself for making it this far. If you have found this resource it means that you are looking for that next step towards change. I am passionate in supporting biological, blended, and chosen families. I also enjoy working with parents/caregivers working on developing a more fluid relationship with their children (young or adult). As well as couple's learning how to navigate what a romantic relationship means to them. In addition, I offer support for other healers and therapists in deepening their own connection with their healing journey. Here is what to expect in therapy:
I acknowledge that we’re meeting on various stolen Lands that are sacred to several Indigenous Peoples. I thank the Indigenous Peoples for stewarding these Lands for generations. I pay respect to the Elders, past, present, and future. I acknowledge that as a settler, I occupy and participate in exploitation of land that are not mine. I advocate for Land Back and Indigenous sovereignty. With reverence and gratitude, I invite us to meet with the intention to learn, heal, and change, and decolonize our ways of being, and to dismantle colonial systems. May we, as a community, consider our toles in the liberations, and restoration of Land, language, and culture for all Indigenous Peoples and forcefully displaced communities. I pay respect to our ancestors that guide us as we reflect on our responsibilities and impact on this and future generations.
My office is located on the land of: Tongva, Acjachmen (Juaneño), Kizh
“Decolonization brings about the re[m]atriation of Indigenous land and life.”
-Tuck & Yung, Decolonization is not a metaphor
"We don't inherent the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
Land Back may look like:
•Get to know and connect with local Indigenous communities
