If you have been looking for a sign to begin your journey with therapy, or want to know more about grief and mental health then this is it- you’ve come to the right place!
I find joy in shifting the paradigm of normalizing grief in ALL spaces. It is my belief that it doesn’t matter what anyone's societal status or background is; everyone is susceptible to loss and challenges with mental health, which is really one more thing that makes us more alike than different. Grief awareness is essential to moving beyond survival. There is freedom in thriving!

I'd like to share
I am the owner/psychotherapist of Visual
Healing Therapeutic Services, PLLC.
I see the value in diversity and I actively strive to amplify awareness of grief and mental health. I don't shy away from highlighting the raw, but real experience of grief that's often tucked away and covered up.
That's because I know the ups and downs of this journey firsthand. I recently suffered two significant losses back-to-back in 2020. With the help of my therapist and a few other special supporters, I decided to face grief head-on even when it felt like giving up would be easier. Dealing with grief can be difficult even for us as mental health professionals because we’re human too.
I know this pain so well, and I am honored to be present with those who are open to receiving support and those who want to grow through their pain. When you commit to growing through the pain and struggles of grief and life itself, with the right kind of support seeds of hope are planted. How you feel and how you react to the pain can eventually begin to improve and it continues to get that much easier every time.
I am often sought out by various organizations in the greater community for the passion and drive I have toward providing education on topics of grief and mental health. I wholeheartedly believe you have the strength not only to survive, but to truly thrive.
I'd love to work with you...
