Meet Chantel

Confronting your own pain and trauma while trying to engage fully in your life can be overpowering and mentally draining. Finding the right therapist to help manage these emotions can prove to be a daunting task in it self. I pride myself on taking a calm yet effective approach when dealing with clients. My experience with multicultural competency provides me with the ability to see different perspectives and meet my clients where they are. I have experience in helping youth and adults manage symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma and other psychiatric disorders.

Using an integrative approach to therapy allows me to give the client a chance to experience therapy in a way that meets their specific needs. Therapy is a collaborative and supportive process where you can feel empowered to be curious and gain the resources and skills needed to enjoy your life.

Ready to find your courage to soar? Let’s take this journey together!

Looking to help single parents in need? So are we!


We all know how expensive college can be! There's the application fee, technology fee, tuition, books, etc. A lot of scholarships are focused on helping people during the Fall semester, but what about the Spring semester? This is the time where many families, especially single parent families find themselves in a financial bind, right after the holidays. We're on a mission to change this by providing parents in need with a $500 book scholarship.

Special thanks to all of those who have expressed an interest in helping as well as those who have donated already!!
