Identifying that you need help is a sign of strength, but what happens next? Finding a counselor that you feel a connection with is an essential part of your mental health journey. Don’t feel bad about being picky!

Throughout her professional career, Jasmine has worked with clients who belong to various minority and multicultural populations.

Jasmine works from an eclectic foundation that primarily combines person-centered, solutions-focused, and existential theories. All treatment plans are tailored to the client’s unique needs. She works with you to pinpoint the presenting problem and then helps to find practical solutions and identify strengths along the way. She believes in getting to the root of core beliefs to discover how they impact our daily lives and influence the patterns of our relationships.

Jasmine strives to build a safe foundation with clients to learn their stories and to help support their vision. Positive change is most likely to occur when a trusting relationship is established and there is a willingness to work together. Jasmine believes people continually re-create themselves because life’s meaning constantly changes. She encourages you to get curious about how we process that change and continue to evolve. Jasmine works collaboratively with clients to develop insight, practice coping mechanisms, and increase overall life satisfaction. 

Think of the counseling relationship as a tool. It can help untangle thought patterns that are no longer useful, find acceptance, and maximize effort toward personal goals. On your life journey and discovery of self, counseling can be the catalyst you need to get out of that rut. No matter what your goals are, Jasmine is here to walk by your side and help you move toward them!
